Central Ohio Diabetes Association Continues To Celebrate
50 Years of Serving the Community by Hosting
An Open House Promoting Living A Healthy Lifestyle

In 1964, a group of Central Ohio Doctors founded the Central Ohio Diabetes Association with the goal of helping Central Ohioans with diabetes to detect their condition, prevent onset and complications and learn to live well with the challenge of the disease. Now 50 years later that mission continues to be carried out at the Central Ohio Diabetes Association.

On Wednesday, February 26, the Central Ohio Diabetes Association will host a community event, “An Open House Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle,” which is part of its Brush Up Series on Diabetes Care from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the agency Headquarters, 1100 Dennison Ave. For more information call 614-884-4400.

This event is designed to offer clients and neighbors of Central Ohio Diabetes Association information about services and products related to diabetes self-management and also to give them an opportunity to participate in short workshops that offer practical instruction in cooking, stress management and exercise.

Caring for Diabetes is a 24 hour, seven day a week job and no matter how much you know it never hurts to get a “Brush-Up” on how to take care of yourself.

Whether you have diabetes, pre-diabetes or are at risk for the disease, this session could help you or someone you know who is affected by diabetes.

Some of the featured vendors scheduled to attend include: Arena Eye Surgeons, Clintonville Community Resource Center, Columbus Podiatry and Surgery, Inc., Exact Care Pharmacy, Local Matters/Cooking Matters, the Lower Lights Christian Health Center, National Kidney Foundation, OSU Comprehensive Wound Center, Roche AccuChek, Susmita Sadana, PhD, Cookbook Author, United Health Care Community Plan and the YMCA.

Registration is required, please call 884-4400 and ask about the Brush-Up Open House Session.
