Diabetes Awareness Fair a success

Published 10:23 am Tuesday, June 2, 2015

On Tuesday, April 28, many individuals participated in the 2015 Ironton Lions Diabetes Awareness Community Health Fair organized by the Ironton Lions Club.

Concerned individuals of various ages received free diabetes screenings, educational information, an opportunity to speak to medical professionals regarding a wide range of medical issues and health safety/security tips.

This year’s event was a success, in great part, because of the many medical providers and volunteers who shared their time and resources.

Thanks to the OLBH, Dr. Bill Basedow and staff, Central Ohio Diabetes Association, Area Aging Agency (AAA7), Genesis, Care Source, Blessed at Home, Ironton City Health Department, Lawrence County Health Department, Appalachian Translation Research Network (OSU) and Mayor Rich Blankenship and the city of Ironton employees.

Our community has much to be proud of and this event played an important role in the continuation of a healthy future.

Thank you all.
