Diabetes is a huge concern across Canada, especially in the indigenous population.
Indiginous people are three to five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than non-indiginous people.
The Beatrice Wilson Health Center is partnering with primary health in The Pas to host a beginner resistance band class to address this locally.
The class will run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 to 3 pm starting on February 26th and running to the end of March.
There is a one-time registration fee of 5 dollars to provide the Bands, and to get involved, you can contact primary health at 204-623-9650.
