Lions fight DiabetesMission: Healthy Communities

Get your club involved with our district Diabetes Awareness Week.  Some dates to watch for are:

  1. World Diabetes Day = November 14th
  2. District Strides Walk for Diabetes = May 2022

For ideas to participate, check out the information in the district newsletters.  Maybe your club is ambitious enough to create a public display, like a field of pinwheels or on a local sign?  Volunteer with the Red Cross, pass out diabetes flyers, share online surveys, or set up a health screening. EVERY club can participate!  

Check out this free and informative online series about prediabetes and diabetes care from nurse and dietitian educators at OhioHealth. Mansfield United Lions Annette Baxter & Margaret Lin are two of the educators presenting in this series!
