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 amputations. Educating patients with diabetes in the management of this chronic disease will help to decrease these risks.
This event is offered by the UHS Diabetes Center and the UHS Stay Healthy Center
