Northeast Ohioans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as nearly 330,000 people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Northeast Ohio office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help.
American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a one-day "wake-up call" asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Join Lakewood Hospital and the American Diabetes Association for Diabetes Alert Day. Free foot, eye, and BMI screenings offered - along with blood sugar, total cholesterol and a simple diabetes risk questionnaire. All results will be reviewed by diabetes educators. Everyone screened will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Giant Eagle card. Free. No Registration Required.
Join us at the Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland as we honor incredibility fathers in our Northeast Ohio community.
