World Diabetes Day will be held at Oklahoma Capitol
A World Diabetes Day program will be held in the rotunda of the Oklahoma Capitol on Nov. 14. Attendees can take part in diabetes screenings, obtain referrals and learn more about the causes and warning signs of the disease.
The World Diabetes Day program will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14. Those who attend the free event at the Capitol can take part in diabetes screenings, pick up free supplies, get treatment referrals and participate in educational activities.
“The idea is create more awareness in people who already have diabetes and advise them what they should do to take care of it, while also teaching people about the risk factors and steps they can take to avoid getting diabetes,” Romano said.
Dr. Terry Cline, Oklahoma Commissioner of Health, will discuss “Living Happily With Diabetes.” Other Oklahoma diabetics will share their personal stories, too.
