Healthy in Any Language: Diabetes
Diabetes is a difficult condition to manage at the best of times. But what if you don’t have medical insurance to help you navigate the healthcare system? What if you don’t speak English or you live in a food desert? What if you don’t feel safe going to the doctor at all?
That’s the reality facing many immigrants and refugees living with diabetes in the United States. Through a series of stories, Side Effects Public Media is taking a look into these issues and the people working to address them. Join us for a free panel discussion on the subject and a screening of the upcoming documentary from Boston-based WGBH, Blood Sugar Rising, about the increasing rates of diabetes in America.
Where: WFYI, 1630 N. Meridian St.
When: Thursday, April 2, 3-5 p.m.
Free to attend. RSVP required.
