On Wednesday, Feb. 26, the Davis branch of the American Association of University Women will hear Christine Lee speak about diabetes at 6:30 p.m. in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Diabetes affects one in seven people in California. Increasing obesity is fueling the rise in diabetes, with more than 60 percent of adults in California being overweight.

The author of “The Essentials of Diabetes” and “The Essentials of Insulin,” Lee will talk about the causes of diabetes, how it damages the body, how to recognize and manage it.

“Because diabetes is so common, we wanted to learn more about it at our meeting,” said Juliana Wells, Davis branch program chair of the American Association of University Women.

A doctor of pharmacy, Lee has helped people with diabetes and other common diseases for the past 20 years.

“I knew I could make a difference when I saw people who felt life was passing them by, people who were scared and didn’t know what to do to take control of their health,” said Lee, founder of Optimal Life, a company that provides educational tools for chronic conditions such as diabetes and asthma, among others.

For information on the presentation, which is free and open to the public, call Wells at 510-758-3011.

The American Association of University Women promotes equity for all women and girls, lifelong education and positive societal change. For information on the Davis branch of the AAUW, visit http://davis-ca.aauw.net.
