Tompkins County Public Library is pleased to offer a talk titled The Thin Prediabetic: Novel Strategies for the Proactive, Tuesday, October 15 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in the Library’s BorgWarner Community Room East.
At this informative lecture, prediabetes physician and author William Shang, MD, will delve into ways to avoid becoming diabetic. As an overlooked metabolic helper, the gut bacteria, or microbiome has only recently become recognized as a tool in the fight against diabetes. Shang will share microbiome-modifying tips to improve metabolism, as well as discussing supplements that can naturally readjust a distressed glucose metabolism for nearly anyone.
William Shang, MD, is certified by the American Board of Pathology and the American College of Sports Medicine. He is currently a staff pathologist for Auburn Community Hospital, director of a Cornell University laboratory, and a graduate of RPI-Albany Medical College’s 6-Year Accelerated Program. He is an advocate and frequent speaker for non-drug approaches to common metabolic diseases as well as the author of two self-help books, The FIRST Program and The Thin Prediabetic. Dr. Shang is also a TCPL Local Voices contributor.
This free program is open to the public.
