In honor of Diabetes Awareness Month, Elmhurst Hospital, in partnership with the Elmhurst Lions Club and Lions Clubs International will be hosting a diabetes Awareness Fair. Please come to this information fair to lean all you can about diabetes and what you can do to reduce your risk. The fair will offer screenings, blood pressure, BMI, a diabetes finger stick (requires 8 hour fast), foot assessment and DiabetesAware, a screening tool which checks your risk for diabetes. There will also be the Retina Screening Unit provided by the Elmhurst Lions and Lions of Illinois Foundation.
Diabetes educators will be on hand to answer your questions. A physician on staff at Edward-Elmhurst Health will kick off the start of each fair with “Ways to reduce your Risk of Pre-Diabetes and Diabetes”.
