Diabetes Awareness Day

Education and Screenings Hosted and Sponsored by Greater Mercer Public Health Partnership

Nov 6, 2013
Event Type: General

The Greater Mercer Public Health Partnership will sponsor its first-ever Diabetes Awareness Day, a coordinated effort to raise community awareness by providing diabetes education and screenings at five locations throughout Mercer and Middlesex counties. This program is being presented in response to feedback we received from residents who responded to our recent community-needs assessment. We learned that many people want and need to know more about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. Bring the whole family to this fun, educational and invaluable community health day to learn about pre-diabetes, diabetes, nutrition and exercise and to have a free blood glucose screening. 

Join us from 7 to 9 a.m., 2 to 4 p.m., or 6 to 8 p.m. at any of these locations:
