CCE to host diabetes health fair

ELIZABETHTOWN - There will be a diabetes health fair taking place at the Elizabethtown Community Hospital on Monday, Nov. 15 from 3 - 6 p.m.

The health fair is organized by the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Essex County and will take place in the hospital boardroom. A light dinner will be served.

The event will allow participants to have their blood pressure and A1c levels checked free of charge. The Hemoglobin A1c test is used to monitor a patient's glucose control over a period of time.

The event also features pharmaceutical representatives, dieticians and pharmacists who will be on-hand to answer questions regarding medications, diet and other information that participants can further discuss with their health care providers.
