Urban Poling – Preventing and Managing Diabetes
This is an excellent introduction to Urban Poling and emphasizes the many health benefits associated with this physical activity for those with type 2 diabetes and those at risk, as well as the advantages of using Urban Poles. It also describes our self management course, walkUP with Diabetes, that includes instructions on the technique, exercises, and strategies to stay on track.
