Zumba with Linda At City of AtlantaSpecial Photo
The City of Atlanta recently hosted a diabetes screening luncheon in the afternoon from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Adamsville Recreation Center on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Atlanta. More than 150 older adults from around the city attended and had the opportunity to ‘get a jump’ on their diabetes and participated in a free Zumba demonstration. The American Kidney Fund (AKF) kicked off the first hour of the event by offering free diabetes screenings, allowing attendees to determine their risk for the disease. Afterwards, local leaders including Councilman C.T. Martin; Maurice Madden, Georgia director of the Medicare Diabetes Screening Project; Sybil Freeman, director of corporate development at the American Diabetes Association; and Linda Vaughn, director of wellness initiatives at the Metro Atlanta YMCA discussed diabetes awareness and prevention. Vaughn closed the event with a basic and fun Zumba demonstration for all of the attendees.
