New Brunswick Program for Pre-Diabetics; Mets Baseball Announcer Declared Cancer-Free


Saint Peter’s Healthcare System offers a free, year-long program that teaches improved nutrition, increased exercise, stress management and weight loss to prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

The Prevent T2 program is open to anyone 18 years or older diagnosed with prediabetes or with a history of gestational diabetes. Taught by registered dietitian nutritionists, sessions are an hour in length with weigh-ins for the 15 minutes before and after class. Lifestyle coaches track progress and give away prizes.

The year-long program meets every other week for its first six months, followed by monthly meetings in the second half of the year.

Registration is required by calling 732-339-7772. Space is limited. Classes can be offered in Spanish if needed.

New York Mets broadcast announcers Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez stood on the dais of the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America to present the Arthur & Milton Richman “You Gotta Have Heart” Award to their partner Ron Darling for his overcoming advertisty.

To the audience at the 97th annual dinner of the Association dinner, at the Sheraton Times Square, Cohen announced Darling was cancer free.

In April, Darling took a brief hiatus from the Mets booth when he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The 59-year-old, beloved among the fanbase, returned to work in June, showing the resiliency those around the Mets have come to expect of him.

“You don’t realize until you’re away how much this is in your blood,” Darling said in a news conference at Citi Field when he returned.

You won’t come across better news. Here’s hoping for the best for Darling as he continues forward in life.
