On the Dance Floor...
American Line Dancing this Saturday 5/12/12

It's that time for another edition of Weigh Wise,  a monthly series dedicated to focusing on the managing weight by Certified Health & Wellness Coach, Michelle Barth, RD, CDE.

If you come to this Saturday's dance, you'll get volume 5 before everyone else. 

What's in all those boxes? 
Keeping up with Dance Out Diabetes

A peek behind the scenes.   
Before every dance is a flurry of activity to get everything ready for our participants. Graduating health promotion intern Kenzie Kujawski (congrats!) made another fun video which shows you some of the prep. Love her sense of humor with the Flight of the Bumble Bees clip. Though Kenzie may have left San Francisco she will still work with us remotely.

Urban Future Leaders Of the World raised awareness and funds for Dance Out Diabetes.


Shibin Tharayil, Emily Parathara and Omar Paul lead the group of UFLOW students in a walk around Lake Merced Park this past Saturday in San Francisco. We performed diabetes risk tests, blood pressure screening and shared information about our new Cash and Care for Wellness Program.


They raised $266!

 The first drawing for the Cash and  Care Wellenss Program happens
 at  the end of May. If you haven't  already signed up for this free  program that  can get cash in your  pocket, start  here. It is open for  people with and without diabetes by  racking up points for taking an active  role in your health. 
The new library  will be uploaded to the the secure  patient portal next week.


 P.S. Happy Mother's Day! Here is  mine dancing... what's that about the  apple falling from the tree? 
 Next month it's ZUMBA on 6/9.
