Baptist Health Community Outreach to Offer Virtual National Diabetes Prevention Program Classes

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Starting in September, Baptist Health Community Outreach will offer a free virtual program to help those with prediabetes and other risk factors for type 2 diabetes improve their health.
