Doc talks diabetes at Rotary

On July 18 the Rotary Club of Historic Folsom will have Dr. Christine Lee speak on diabetes.

At the Lake Natoma Inn breakfast, the author of “The Essentials of Diabetes” and “The Essentials of Insulin” will talk about the causes of diabetes, how it damages the body and how to control it.

The Rotary Club of Historic Folsom has nearly 30 members who meet weekly to hear speakers, network and provide service to others.

“Knowing how common diabetes is, we were very interested in having Dr. Lee speak at our meeting,” said Kevin Gleave, Folsom Rotary program chair and owner of Healing Sensation Massage Therapy.

Diabetes affects one in seven people in California. More than 60 percent of adults in California are overweight. Increasing obesity is fueling the increase in diabetes.

A doctor of pharmacy, Lee has helped people with diabetes for the past 20 years.

“I knew I could make a difference when I saw people who felt life was passing them by, people who were scared and didn’t know what to do to take control of their health,” said Lee, founder of Optimal Life, a company that provides educational tools for chronic conditions such as diabetes and asthma, among others.
