Cape Town: invitation to diabetes bus days

Kenilworth Medicross has been fortunate to secure the use of the Diabetes Bus, during the week of 8-11 November 2011. The bus will be parked at the 67 Rosmead Avenue Spar parking lot, opposite the entrance to the Medicross. The purpose of the bus is to create awareness about diabetes, and to improve the lives of those living with diabetes.

The FREE services offered to the general public include height, weight, waist circumference, finger prick for glucose, blood pressure and education on diabetes/healthy eating. These services are going to be available on TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY THE 8TH AND 9TH OF NOVEMBER. No booking is necessary, just pop in anytime from 9am to 3pm.

For patients of the Kenilworth Medicross (if you go to any of the GPs there) who are diabetic (already been diagnosed), there will also be FREE EYE AND FOOT CARE SCREENING available on the THURSDAY AND FRIDAY THE 10TH AND 11TH NOVEMBER. Booking is ESSENTIAL and space is limited. If you would like to be booked please email Lara Wiese with your full name and telephone number, and the day/time you prefer. She will slot you in as best she can, and email a time back to you once it has been secured.
