DIABETES ALERT DAY

Tuesday, March 25 is DIABETES ALERT DAY! The American Diabetes Association reports that nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes and that one quarter of those people do not know it. Diabetes Alert Day was established 26 years ago so people could learn if they are at risk for developing the serious disease. The Diabetes Center at North Florida Regional Healthcare will be participating in this special day by hosting diabetes risk assessments, blood sugar screenings and interactive learning activities.

Diabetes Alert Day Activities
Tuesday, March 25
8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

For the most accurate readings, diabetes screening participants are asked not to eat or drink anything other than water after midnight the night before. No appointment is necessary, but more information about the events on Diabetes Alert Day is available from The Diabetes Center at 352–333–5141.


Diabetes Support Group

North Florida Regional Healthcare is proud to reveal its newest community resource: a Diabetes Support Group. The group is led by expert providers in North Florida Regional’s Diabetes Center who are all registered dietitians and certified diabetes educators. The main objective of this new group is to offer information and tips on how to treat, live with and, in some cases, prevent diabetes altogether. These support group meetings are open to patients and families with diabetes, as well as those with pre-diabetes and those at risk of diabetes who want more information. They will be held quarterly in the following months - January, April, July and October.
