Eleven million Canadians live with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and many may not even know they are affected.
To help build awareness and knowledge, the annual Travelling Health Fair is back this February and March with a focus on diabetes and managing your blood sugar, with a view to keeping your risk as low as possible.
The Fair is open to everyone, with and without diabetes or pre-diabetes, and is a partnership between the Health, Wellbeing and Benefits team and the Pharmacists Clinic.
As part of the free health assessment, you will receive:
- Measurement of weight, body dimensions, blood pressure and blood sugars (a small pin prick of blood will be drawn)
- A personalized risk assessment and information about risk factors
- Education about blood sugars, diabetes and what it all means
- Interpretation of results & an individualized action plan
UBC’s Health, Wellbeing and Benefits team will also be on hand to provide resources, info and freebies.
Learn more and register early as spots are limited.
