In honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month, staff of the EVMS Strelitz Diabetes Center conducted diabetes screenings and provided information on diabetes on Nov. 17 at Onelife Fitness in Norfolk.

Staff invited anyone who was screened to stay and work out. Holly Williams with Bob-FM was there doing a live remote and interviewed Jerry Nadler, MD, the Harry H. Mansbach Chair in Internal Medicine, Vice Dean of Research, and Professor and Chair of Internal Medicine, on ways to prevent Type 2 diabetes.   

Onelife Fitness supports the Strelitz Diabetes Center year-round by making an EVMS-branded stairmill available to its members and contributes funds to EVMS based on the stairmill’s use. Onelife Fitness presented a check to support the EVMS Strelitz Diabetes Center during the screening event.
