Crozer-Keystone’s Center for Diabetes once again recognized American Diabetes Month with a free, comprehensive, community education event. The annual “Healthy Living with Diabetes,” health fair, held at the Healthplex® Sports Club in Springfield, teamed up with one of Philadelphia’s most recognizable mascots, the Phillie Phanatic. The Phanatic welcomed visitors with his notorious antics and playful nature.

In addition to the Phanatic, this event featured educational lectures and workshops on topics that are important to those living with diabetes, as well as vendors and representatives of Crozer-Keystone. Attendees also received free glucose and cholesterol screenings, blood pressure screenings and free flu shots. The Center for Diabetes educators were available throughout the day to talk with visitors about the Center’s services and educational opportunities. 

Event speakers included Ruth Ann Fitzpatrick, M.D., CKHS endocrinologist; Christopher Williams, M.D., chief of the Division of Ophthalmology at Crozer-Chester Medical Center; and Patty Haney, Mid-Atlantic regional manager for Johnson and Johnson.
