Visit the Diabetes Wellness Fair on October 7 at 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Sioux City Convention Center. Free Admission! 

Managing Diabetes can be overwhelming, difficult, frustrating, and scary, and it would remain so if it were not for the people who can bind together to help each other through it. Having a community of people who understand, who have impactful suggestions, and who can push you into a positive mindset is not only an important part of living with diabetes but of being a human in general.

Our community is a strong one, both in the support for a cure and the support for a cause. We could all benefit from a sense of community like that, whether it surrounds a cause or a club. No matter where you are in the world, life is better when you engage with it.

This is why we at Family Health Care of Siouxland hold an annual Diabetes Wellness Fair at the Sioux City Convention Center. We’re passionate about improving lives. Here are the top five reasons you should check out the Diabetes Wellness Fair this year. It could change your life, and it just may save it.

There’s no reason to put off health screenings when they’re free and part of a great event.
