MNE hosts community diabetes night

Monday, October 16, 2017 - 9:45am

Today, more than 30 million people are living with diabetes in the United States. Thanks to better treatments, these individuals are living longer — and enjoying a better quality of life — than ever before.

If you are living with diabetes, it’s important to make choices that maintain your health. On Thursday, Nov. 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Ridge Building at Mercyhurst North East, the Mercyhurst Nursing Program along with Jackie Carlson, RD, CDE of Novo Nordisk will sponsor a free event to help you do just that.

This will be an evening to learn how to manage your health while living with diabetes. There will be a brief presentation followed by foot exams, blood pressure readings and vendor tables. Space is limited; contact Sharon Zuccolotto (814-725-6139) by Nov. 10 to reserve a spot.
