Christus Spohn Participates in National Diabetes Alert Day

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Christus Spohn Hospital participated in a wake-up call to folks at risk for diabetes. It was all part of National Alert Day, sponsored by the American Diabetes Association.

Throughout the Coastal Bend, Christus Spohn hospitals set up booths to check on visitors who might be at risk for developing the disease in the future. Plus, those who are already diagnosed with diabetes got some extra tips on how to treat and manage their diabetes.

"Diabetes is a very silent disease, and many times people do not know that they are at risk, or even that they have diabetes," said Mary Anne Strobel of Christus Spohn Hospital.

The free event was coordinated by Christus Spohn's diabetes program, Community Health Workers and Wellness Services.
