Wellness Wednesday: Bromances, Midlife Crises and the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program
A new study suggests that "bromances," or male friendships, are important to men's health. And, new research reveals that the common idea of a "midlife crisis" is a rarer occurrence than previously believed. Also, with more than 80 million Americans who have pre-diabetes, programs like the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program have helped many of these people at risk. Now, there is a plan to expand Medicare to cover similar programs across the country.
