DURHAM, NC - The new Durham Diabetes Coalition television show, “Living Healthy” is currently airing on Durham Government Television, Time Warner Cable Channel 8.

The 30-minute program hosted by Jannah Bierens, Public Health Education Specialist with the Durham County Department of Public Health, will feature segments on topics such as nutrition, physical activity, local resources, diabetes information, and personal stories of Durham residents living with type 2 diabetes.

“This TV show will give us a chance to connect with Durham residents and give them tips and tools to live a healthy lifestyle,” said Public Health Director, Gayle Harris. “This show will benefit anyone who watches, but we hope it will help people manage their diabetes successfully.”

The Durham Diabetes Coalition is a partnership among the Durham County Department of Public Health, Duke University, the University of Michigan Center for Geospatial Medicine, Durham health and community organizations, faith-based groups, local

government, and community members working together to improve the health outcomes and quality of life for Durham County adults living with type 2 diabetes.
