Diabetes Alert Day 2017

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - The Florida Department of Health in Bay County's Healthy Bay Diabetes Services Program is encouraging participation in the American Diabetes Association Alert Day on Tuesday, March 28th.

An estimated 86 million Americans have prediabetes, and 90 percent of them don't know even they have it. Prediabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes, but unlike type 2 diabetes, prediabetes can be reversed with healthy lifestyles changes.

The Community Health Task Force and the Florida Department of Health in Bay County will be offering free blood sugar checks as part of the Community Health Improvement plan.
