diabetes 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (10/9/13) – The Modernettes Civic Club, Inc. and Pioneers, Inc. are planning a “Diabetes and More,” health fair on Saturday, November 2, 9 a.m. to noon, at the Pioneers Memorial Complex, 904 N. Main Street. The event is free and designed for adults of all ages and children.
 
Co-sponsors of the health fair are Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
 
Nurses and technicians from Jennie Stuart Medical Center will provide screenings for diabetic foot ulcers, blood pressure, blood sugar, lung function, and other health conditions. Additional hospital staff also will be on hand demonstrating services for sleep disorders and weight-loss surgery.
Other participating healthcare providers include Chester Crump, MD, who is speaking on cancer; Lisa Radix, MD; Pennyroyal Mental Health Center; and DaVita Dialysis.
 
“Because November is Diabetes Month nationally, we want to bring more awareness to this disease that is so prevalent in our community,” Oveta Gray, Modernettes chair says. “We hope this health fair prompts people to think more about preventive screenings, not just in November, but throughout the year.”
 
"We recognize that good health comes from receiving quality medical care as well as stopping disease before it starts,” Henry Snorton, III, Pioneers president, says. “Helping to improve our community's quality of life is part of our mission, thus, so is preventative health and wellness."

For more information, call (270) 885-7505.
