Being diagnosed with diabetes can be scary, frustrating, and stressful. It’s important to remember that a diagnosis is the first step in discovering what your body needs so you can thrive whole-heartedly. Now, more than ever, is a time to think positively. Diabetes doesn’t have to be about deprivation; on the contrary, it’s an opportunity to seek out and enjoy whole, nutritious foods, explore new ways to exercise, meet new friends, and embrace life in a whole new way. A diabetes diagnosis may mean the end of a certain way of life, but it is also a chance for a brand new, healthy beginning.

People living with diabetes learn the art of balance in more significant ways than their glucose-tolerant companions; they feel very quickly the effects of a proper nutrition, appropriate insulin monitoring, adequate exercise, and being equipped with a caring support system. Maintaining a diabetes wellness plan can afford diabetes patients with several opportunities to regain control over their health and their lives.

Living well with diabetes is more manageable than ever, thanks to medical advancements and social networking. Our annual Diabetes Wellness Fair gets people connected, whether it is to check their glucose levels or to support and exercise groups. Free and open to the public, the fair features businesses and vendors showcasing new technology, products, and screenings. Take advantage of free health screenings, fun family-centered activities, door prizes, a special guest speaker, and more!
