RGV Diabetes Association Panel of Experts

RGV Diabetes Association Panel of Experts

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to gain valuable insights into managing diabetes!

According to a study done for the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “People living in the Lower Rio Grande Valley face challenges of high rates of type 2 diabetes, lack of knowledge about prevention, and inadequate access to medical care. Recent statistics from actual community-wide screenings indicate a high diabetes prevalence, 30.7% among adults in the LRGV compared with 12.3% nationwide.”

Join us for the RGV Diabetes Association’s upcoming Panel of Experts events in honor of National Diabetes Day.

These free events offer the community a chance to engage with medical professionals, ask questions, and voice concerns about diabetes. Whether you’re seeking information for yourself or a loved one, our experts are here to provide guidance and support.

Mark your calendars for March 26th at the McAllen Chamber of Commerce (1200 Ash Avenue) and April 2nd at the Weslaco Independent School District Professional Learning Center (498 East Mesquite). Both events start at 6:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. respectively.
