Thursday, November 14, 2019 November is Diabetes Awareness Month Approximately one in 11 Iowans has some form of diabetes and about one in three Iowa adults has prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose (sugar) levels are high, but not high enough yet to be classified as type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and people with this condition are at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, and serious diabetes-related complications. It’s important to know if you have prediabetes or diabetes. “Most people with prediabetes don’t know they have it,” said Iowa Deptartment of Public Health (IDPH) Diabetes Prevention coordinator Andrew Minear. “About one in four people who already have diabetes are also unaware they have it, and are at risk for severe diabetes-related complications.” IDPH encourages Iowans who do not have diabetes to take a quick one-minute risk test at http:// DoIHavePrediabetes.0rg to determine their prediabetes risk. If you have prediabetes, the National Diabetes Prevention Program can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. A list of National Diabetes Prevention Programs is available at https:/ /nccd.cdc.gov/DDT_DPRP/Programs.aspx. Additional information about IDPH’s diabetes prevention and control efforts is available at http:// idph.iowa.gov/diabetes.

Photo Printing, Inc. 210 S. lst Street Carlisle, Iowa 50047 515-989-3251 N/Warren Town and County News Iowa History 101 Exhibition The State Historical Society of Iowa’s “History on the Move” mobile museum completed its three-year tour of Iowa’s 99 counties on October 31st during a visit to Osceola. The museum on wheels traveled the state’s highways and back roads the past three years in a bright blue, custom-built Winnebago that housed a BOO-square-foot exhibition called “Iowa History 101”. More than 64,000 people toured the exhibition during its three-year tour and learned about Iowa’s past through artifacts from the State Historical Society of Iowa’s permanent collection. Like a visit to a grandparent’s attic, the exhibition unpacked stories of Iowa’s past with nearly 50 artifacts, including a battered miner’s cap worn by Carl Coghlan, a Marion County coal miner; a 1917 prototype of the state flag designed by Dixie Cornell Gebhardt of Knoxville; a pen Governor William Harding used to ratify the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote; a basketball jersey Lynne Lorenzen wore during her glory days at Ventura High School; an Olympic medal from sprinter Natasha Kaiser-Brown of Des Moines; and a patch from a spacesuit worn by astronaut Peggy Whitson of Beaconsfield. As a bonus, Mike Wolfe, the creator and star of the hit television series “American Pickers”, lent his voice and video talents to the exhibition’s multimedia elements. A native of Le Claire, Wolfe has a long- standing interest in history and a knack for using artifacts to unlock its stories. The idea for the mobile museum emerged in 2014 from a series of community conversations organized by the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, which oversees the State Historical Society. Iowans who care deeply about history made it clear they want new ways to access the State Historical Museum’s resources. Accordingly, the 38-foot Winnebago visited all 99 Iowa counties over the course of three years, beginning in 2017 with stops at schools, libraries, local museums, community festivals, county fairs, and other places where Iowans gather. i More than 11,400 students from 63 Iowa schools and school districts Visited the exhibition. School Visits connected local history to statewide history and were tailored to meet Iowa Core Social Studies standards for Iowa history. Students and teachers made connections with local history through supplementary resources, including an Iowa trivia game that connected the exhibition to the classroom. The traveling exhibition is one of a trio of “Iowa History 101” exhibitions. Visitors to the State Historical Museum in Des Moines can find both a traditional museum exhibition, plus an interactive “Hands-On History” gallery designed especially for children.
