Diabetes Expo coming April 24
Amery Hospital & Clinic and Westfields Hospital & Clinic are teaming up to offer a spring Diabetes Expo.
The free event, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 24 at Westfields in New Richmond, Wis., will feature seminars, mini-classes and booths on subjects including:
- Travel and diabetes
- What your blood glucose checks can tell you
- Starting an exercise plan
- Adding healthy vegetables to meals
- Sleep apnea
- Diabetes eye care
“One of the biggest issues with type 2 diabetes is that people blame themselves,” said certified diabetes educator and registered dietician Jill Norstrem. “The goal of this event is to give people the tools they will need to take charge of their diabetes.”
Light appetizers will be served and attendees can take advantage of free blood pressure checks and healthy diabetes meal planning services during the event.
