Celebrate World Diabetes Day with RDLC
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and you are invited to celebrate
international World Diabetes Day with Reppell Diabetes Learning Center
on Friday, November 14! World Diabetes Day is celebrated annually by the
International Diabetes Federation and its member associations. It engages
millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. World
Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation
and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about
the escalating health threat that diabetes now poses.
The Reppell Diabetes Learning Center is celebrating World Diabetes Day
locally by hosting a free diabetes education program from 7 a.m. to noon
in the Lagerborg Dining Room at BRMC.
Did you know diabetes healthy eating begins with healthy breakfast? Breakfast
will be served from 7 to 8 a.m., followed by diabetes education, vendors,
food, fun and prizes. The event is free, but space is limited. To register,
