Diabetes is a disease that affects your body’s ability to produce or use insulin. Insulin is a hormone. When your body turns the food you eat into energy (also called sugar or glucose), insulin is released to help transport this energy to the cells.


The thyroid, located in your neck, is a large endocrine gland that regulates your metabolism. It produces two main hormones to fulfill this role.


The Jones Center Wellness Program uses the Team approach which stands for training, education, accountability, and motivation. Supporting our mission statement we provide comprehensive information and instruction empowering our participants to enhance their overall quality of life.
