EL PASO - There's a new push for diabetes awareness in the borderland. Saudi Por Vida or the Health for Life initiative kicked off Thursday afternoon at La Fe clinic in central El Paso.
The initiative will provide federal resources to help educate people with diabetes how to better handle the disease. A number of classes will be provided at area health agencies.
Organizers say the movement is important, especially here in El Paso. Most of the new diabetes classes will be free of charge. For more information call 211.
