2019 Diabetes Awareness Day At Palm Beach Outlets
A Resounding Success
A Shout Out and Heartfelt Thank You to Our Host Palm Bech Outlets, Palm Health Foundation, The Breakers Palm Beach, Our Sponsoring Partners, Community Organizations, Student Volunteers and Our Palm Beach Community in joining the Diabetes Coalition for our first January “Healthy & Ready to Thrive / Know Your Numbers” Diabetes Awareness Day!!! With the help of our Keiser University (Vista Parkway & Flagship) and Nova Southeastern University, Palm Beach Gardens students, over 200 free Diabetes Risk Assessment Screenings were provided, which included free A1c Now tests and other health biomarkers.
In addition to our 20-plus community partner booths who provided education and resource materials, all were treated to “tasty, healthy, “kid-approved” edible eats, led by Chef Josef and the Breakers Palm Beach Team, and also included Chick-fil-A with special Guest Mr. Cow, and First Watch. Healthy and Ready to Thrive Children’s Activities included face painting and various children’s games led by the Breaker’s Children’s Team. Once again as always, the crowd Rocked the Outlets with Digital Vibez!!!!
Again, Many Many Thanks to All for Helping Diabetes Awareness Day Reach it’s Goal of Educating Palm Beach Community about Diabetes Prevention and Management, and how very important it is to “Know Your Numbers”!
