Free UHS Diabetes Health Fair

 

The UHS Diabetes Center and UHS Stay Healthy Center will hold a health fair on Wednesday, November 20, from 1 to 5 pm, at UHS Vestal, 4417 Vestal Parkway East.

Diabetes educators and information on diabetes management, self-care and prevention will be available. Information from the American Diabetes Association will also be available.

UHS Stay Healthy will be available for blood pressure screening. Exercise physiologists will be present for providing tips for diabetes and staying healthy to prevent diabetes. 

There will also be a cooking demonstration with our Chef and Registered Dietitian from 2 to 4 PM.

November is National Diabetes Month. Diabetes affects millions of people nationally and is estimated to afflict over 25,000 people in Broome County alone. One-third of them have not yet been diagnosed. Approximately 300 deaths are caused by diabetes each year in our community, plus numerous occurrences of related blindness and amputation. Educating patients with diabetes in the management of this chronic disease will help to decrease these risks.

The UHS Diabetes and Endocrinology Center is your home for diabetes support and education. A referral from your provider is required for diabetes education or initial visits with our endocrinology team. The UHS Diabetes Center is located at 93 Pennsylvania Ave in Binghamton NY.
