Macon County Public Health has a mission for reaching people with diabetes. In recognition of November as National Diabetes Awareness Month, MCPH is announcing a “Diabetes Expo” to be held at Macon County Public Health on Monday, Nov. 24, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The Diabetes Expo will offer: information on how to get control of blood glucose, recipes, live fitness demos, local resources for medical and financial support, tips for success, and a chance to speak with registered dietitians.
Free fasting glucose checks will be available while supplies last. If you are concerned about your risk for diabetes or whether you are maintaining control, you are invited to participate in this risk screening opportunity.
For more information about the Diabetes Expo or the Diabetes Self-Management Program, contact Jessi Bassett, RD, at (828)349-2086.
