Lake County Cooperative Extension offering two educational programs at the end of April

RELEASE DATE: April 16, 2009

TAVARES — The Lake County Cooperative Extension is offering two educational programs at the end of this month: “Money Management for College Freshmen” on Thursday, April 30, and the three-part series “Small Steps, Big Rewards Diabetes Prevention” on April 27, May 4 & 11.

The “Money Management for College Freshmen” program is offered 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lake County Agricultural Center, located at 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares. The free program will help students better understand how to organize their finances. Information provided includes how to control expenses and spending, create a budget, avoid identity theft and use credit wisely.

The three-part “Small Steps, Big Rewards Diabetes Prevention” series from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Agricultural Center will explain what diabetes is, discuss risks & symptoms and provide small steps to help participants reduce their risk for the disease. Studies have shown that people at high risk for the disease can prevent or delay the onset of diabetes by making modest lifestyle changes. Participants can learn what to do to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by attending the series presented by Julie England, an extension agent with the Lake County Cooperative Extension. There is a $10 fee for program materials and supplies.

Pre-registration is required for both programs. To register, call Rene Bass at (352) 343-4101 or e-mail rcbass@ufl.edu.
