The Diabetes Awareness Fair


ASHA, in collaboration with Masjid Omar, hosted "The Diabetes Awareness Fair" at Masjid Omar on March 31, 2018. The fair included a presentation on diabetes, Q&A, health screening, free quinoa salad tasting and free distribution of healthy snacks, handouts and giveaways. A presentation of diabetes was delivered by a panel that included a religious leader, physician, nutritionist and patients.  Health fair attendees received free blood glucose, blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) screenings.  The Fair, a first of its kind for both ASHA and Masjid Omar, saw approximately 80 community members in attendance who demonstrated interest and curiosity in learning about diabetes.
