CANANDAIGUA- In honor of World Diabetes Day, Thompson Health dietitians and patient educators are hosting “It’s All About You,” a forum on diabetes prevention and treatment from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, November 14, in the Market Café at Wegmans, 345 Eastern Blvd., Canandaigua.

The event includes a question-and-answer session with an expert panel of physicians and a keynote presentation by national motivational speaker and Canandaigua resident Ted Kaufman. A health scare and subsequent diabetes diagnosis two years ago led Ted to take advantage of Thompson’s diabetes education and support programs.

In addition, informational tables on topics such as new technologies in diabetes management will also be available. Refreshments will be served. Proceeds benefit the Diabetes Education Scholarship Fund.

Cost of the event is $5 in advance or $7 at the door. Call 585-396-6233 or 585-396-6120 for more information or go to www.ThompsonHealth.com and register for the event.
