MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center Ask the Doctor Seminar: Diabetes Awareness Day

November 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for an informative, interactive seminar

Diabetes Awareness Day

People with diabetes face serious risks to their heart, eyes, and kidneys, as well as their overall health—even when they have no symptoms. Prevention, early detection and management are the keys to controlling diabetes.

In recognition of American Diabetes month, the Diabetes Self-Management Program at MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center is inviting you to join us for Diabetes Awareness Day. You’ll be able to find out if you are at risk for diabetes, or to learn how to manage your health if you’ve already been diagnosed.

At this FREE community event, you’ll have an opportunity to meet our diabetes care expert:

Lauren R. Williams, MD, internal medicine and pediatrics, Fort Washington Family Medical Center, 301-292-1590.

All attendees will also receive a certificate for a FREE diabetes screening, including blood glucose, Hemoglobin A1c, and cholesterol levels- a simple blood test that could save your life. Fasting the day of the event is not necessary as the certificate can be used anytime by bringing it to the hospital laboratory. Come and join us!

Her practice includes preventive medicine as well as the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes for adults and children.
