CFMC Offers Diabetes Awareness Education
American Diabetes Month takes place each November and is a time to come together as a community to Stop Diabetes®! Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Cumberland Family Medical Center, Inc. is doing its part to help educate patients throughout its 17 county service area.
Health Promotions Coordinator Taylor Watson will be visiting Family Medical Center clinics to offer education on issues surrounding diabetes. Affordable healthy snacks along with their recipes will be available for sampling. Raising awareness of this ever-growing disease is one of the main efforts behind this mission.
Visit our website calendar to find out when we will be at a clinic near you! For more information on diabetes awareness, visit the American Diabetes Association at www.diabetes.org.
