Health department donates books to library

-A A +A


In honor of November being American Diabetes Month, the Lake Cumberland District Health Department Diabetes Education Program recently donated a set of "The Eagle Books" to the Taylor County Public Library.

"The Eagle Books" are a series of four children's books written by Georgia Perez that contain stories about growing strong and preventing diabetes. The books were developed by the CDC Division of Diabetes Translation's Native Diabetes Wellness Program, in collaboration with the Tribal Leaders Diabetes Committee and the Indian Health Service, in response to the burden of diabetes among Native Americans and the need for diabetes prevention materials for children.

For more information about diabetes, contact the local health department at 465-4191 and ask to speak to the diabetes educator or call (800) 928-4416.
