Meet people who are living with diabetes and see how they manage the disease to live healthy, full lives. Also, learn about a YMCA program in Louisville that offers classes to help those identified as prediabetic make important behavioral changes, and state workers identify specific ways people without diabetes can contribute to resolve this growing problem.

Experts will highlight the most promising strategies underway for dealing with this problem.
