For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Learn how to lower your risk of diabetes and pre-diabetes by attending a free class series offered by the Aspirus Riverview Diabetes & Nutrition Center.

The four class series is designed for those who have been told their blood sugars are high, as well as those who simply wish to learn more about reducing their diabetes/pre-diabetes risk.
