I’m Andy Mandell, aka Mr. Diabetes®, the Executive Director of Defeat Diabetes Foundation. Did you know that Type ll Diabetes is preventable more than 50% of the time? I am personally inviting you to join Defeat Diabetes Foundation for a new weekly series that can help you, your friends and your loved ones to control and/or prevent Type ll Diabetes. We know it’s not easy, but it’s simple, and Together We Can…Defeat Diabetes®! Every week, join our host, Alivia McDaniel, along with a few special guests, as she leads us through The Mr. Diabetes® Home Fitness Program. In each short video, Alivia will teach us one new stretch, or exercise, that will get us all moving a little more, helps us be more active and, more importantly, to be pro-active as we fight this insidious disease that has reached epidemic proportions in the United States.
