CentraCare Health – Monticello Hosts Annual Diabetes Health Fair
CentraCare Health – Monticello is hosting a Diabetes Health Fair for the community on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, from 3 – 6 p.m. at the hospital. This free event features blood pressure checks and glucose screenings; tips for healthy food choices; and interactive education on diabetes products, technology, resources and treatments.
Current statistics show that one in three Americans will have diabetes by the year 2050 if the current trend continues. Additionally, many people living with diabetes, or prediabetes, are not aware of the steps they can take to help themselves feel better and manage their overall health. CentraCare Health – Monticello is committed to helping members of the community learn how to better manage and prevent diabetes. This fun and interactive event allows community members to ask questions and gather information to inspire healthier lifestyle choices.
