In an effort to educate the public on preventive measures, a free public seminar will also be held on Saturday, May 22 at 9:30 a.m. 11:15 a.m. "New Strategies to Prevent Diabetes and Obesity: The Latest in Diet, Fitness and Drug Therapy," will also be held in the auditorium of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building on the Emory campus.

Medical experts from Emory, Northwestern University, University of Colorado and University of California at Los Angeles, will discuss issues related to diet, exercise, children's health and risks, and updates on medications for diabetes and high cholesterol.
