Talking diabetes in the Upper Cumberland with Dr. Dawn Grasham & Lisa Bumbalough
It is the nation’s seventh biggest killer. It is diabetes. 15% of Tennesseans deal with diabetes – that number was just 5% as late as 1996. Why the rise? What can be done to lower the number? How can you protect yourself? We explore diabetes in the Upper Cumberland with Dr. Dawn Grasham – the Upper Cumberland’s Regional Medical Director for the state of Tennessee – and Lisa Bumbalough – Putnam County’s Health Director.
