Penobscot Community Health Care and St. Joseph Healthcare hosted a diabetes expo, Friday.
It featured nutrition and diet advice, cooking demonstrations, dental care and insulin pumps. Experts spoke to people with diabetes and those caring for diabetes patients about how to stay healthy.
“Cause now we’re getting into the season where people say oh it’s too cold outside or it’s too icy. If you’re living in Maine, get over it. You’ve got to be outside or you’ve got to be inside you’ve got to exercise,” says Certified Diabetes Educator, Georgia Clark-Albert.
Experts recommend at elast 30 minutes of walking five days a week.
