Mountain Vista Medical Center Hosts 3rd Annual Diabetes Fair, Nov. 1

Receive free diabetes-related health information, screenings and more

American Diabetes Month takes place each November and is a time for the community to come together to stop diabetes. That’s why Mountain Vista Medical Center is hosting its third annual Diabetes Fair on Saturday, Nov. 1 from 8 a.m. to noon. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of educational tools, screenings and physician-led seminars in an effort to combat diabetes, the seventh leading cause of death in the United States.

Health booths will include information on a variety of diabetes-related topics, along with health screenings and risk assessments for blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), cardiovascular and stroke risk, cholesterol and glucose, depression, foot health, peripheral artery disease (PAD) and eye health. Additionally, physicians will lead seminars on the following topics: Preventing Heart Disease, Understanding Diabetes and Its Complications and a panel on Vision, Heart and Sole concerns related to diabetes.

The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion estimates that 21 million Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes, a majority being type 2. It is also estimated that 86 million Americans, 20 years or older, have “prediabetes,” meaning that they are at high-risk of developing the disease. If left untreated, those with prediabetes are likely to develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years.

Mountain Vista Medical Center is located at 1301 S. Crismon Rd. in Mesa. RSVP is required for screenings and seminars. To register, call 1-877-924-WELL (9355). More information can also be found at mvmedicalcenter.com/diabetes
