Free diabetes screening in Boyne City

The Boyne Valley Lions Club, based in Boyne City, is working with Munson Healthcare Charlevoix Hospital, and MSU Extension Services to provide FREE diabetes screening for the community on World Diabetes Day, Nov. 14 at the Boyne City Hall located at 319 North Lake St. in Boyne City from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Diabetes is expected to affect 522 million people by 2030 which is why the Boyne Valley Lions along with their partners are working to raise awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the individual and to promote the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education of the condition.
