Costco Diabetes Store Tour...and much, much more.

​​ This week, on the Health and Humor Show, we did an audio overview of the Costco Diabetes Store Tour pdf (the link to pdf article is provided below). 45 pages/slides long, the document is a wonderful overview not only of the diabetic products offered by Costco, but also a comprehensive look at the vast variety of heathy food options available at Costco Wholesale.
