Exercise and Diabetes Information Offered at Continuing Monthly Program

May 9th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

“Exercise, What it Can and Cannot Do for Patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes” will be presented by Seymour R. Levin, M.D., Endocrinologist/ Diabetologist, on Tuesday, May 12, 2009, at 7:15 p.m., in the CHEC building of the San Gabriel Valley Medical Center, 261 Junipero Sera Drive (NW corner of Broadway) in San Gabriel.  The program is presented by The San Gabriel Valley Unit of the American Diabetes Association, the longest running patient education program in the San Gabriel Valley.  This is the ninth in a series of ten monthly continuing education programs for patients and their families, understanding that diabetes is a family condition.  A support group precedes the featured presentation at 6:30 p.m.
Doctor Levin has had a distinguished career.  His education began in Illinois.  Following his military service, he came to California.  After fellowships in San Francisco, he landed at the Wadsworth VA in Los Angeles (1973).  The Doctor has received numerous research grants concerning all aspects of diabetes.  He has shared his knowledge all over the world.  Since 2006 he has been Associate Editor of “Diabetes Care”, the most widely read newsletter on diabetes, for physicians.  In 2001, the Doctor was named Professor of Medicine Emeritus at the UCLA School of Medicine.  Doctor Levin is once again sharing his knowledge with all of us in the San Gabriel Valley.
The Mission of the American Diabetes Association is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.  All participants in this Unit are volunteers, including our speakers.  The San Gabriel Valley Unit meets from September through June.  This meeting is open to the public at no charge.  Parking, off of Broadway, is also free.  For further information and directions, we suggest that you call Elaine Fried at (626) 284-5451 or (323) 283-2061.
