Considering that half of people who die from diabetes are under the age of 60, it’s great that the United Nations has designated today as World Diabetes Day.
For those who read last Sunday’s edition of the Ruston Daily Leader, inside was this summer’s Living Well magazine.

These men and women provide protection to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
