Health near you – Lions-club
For 3rd year, Lions Club Mirande Astarac organized, during the market under the hall, a free and anonymous action of screening of diabetes, under the aegis of the association Lider Diabetes. The stakes are high in the face of the explosion of this disease in adults, a consequence, in addition to family factors, sedentary lifestyle and poor nutrition habits. It is estimated that there are 800 000 people in France who are undiagnosed. On the Mirande site, thanks to the strong mobilization of Lions-Club members and their proximity to the local population, nearly 200 blood tests, fast and painless, were carried out. Appointment is given for next year!
