AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - Amory’s hospital is offering a program to help people understand diabetes.

The Diabetes Prevention Program will be held several times a month for one year.

This program is a first of its kind for Amory, according to Dr. Vernon Rayford, a primary care physician at IMA-Tupelo.

The meetings are scheduled to be held at North Mississippi Medical Center Gilmore-Amory inside the hospital’s cafeteria at 6 p.m.

However, the location, date and time are subject to change.

Lorie Bryant, the marketing/business development director at Gilmore, said this program could benefit everyone.

People can learn more about:

  • Making correct food choices
  • Exercise
  • And More

Rayford said he hopes people will leave with tools to help them do many of the things that can help improve health.
