October Healthy Horizons

Join PartnerMD at acac for the second of our four-part series to learn about preventing the leading causes of death in the U.S.: heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Next up in our series on Tuesday, October 3 at 12pm is Dr. Mark Petrizzi speaking on Prevention and Early Diagnosis of Diabetes.

Diabetes is an epidemic in our country and worldwide according to the CDC and WHO. And as you may well know, it’s a growing concern at home in our families whether it is with our own health, that of a spouse, parent or sibling. Working closely with a primary care physician can help you discover if you are at risk and detect early signs of the condition. This early detection and prevention can lead to an improved lifestyle which leads to healthier outcomes and lower mortality rates. We will discuss the various forms of diabetes, the appropriate screening labs, and the best team approach to your health if the diagnosis is confirmed.

Please RSVP at the front desk or by calling (804)464-0990. Guests are welcome and lunch is provided.
