ACE Diabetes will host its 4th Health Expo Saturday November 30th from 10am to 2pm at the Baha Mar Convention Center. The event is free and open to everyone! The theme is “Know Your Numbers” – Why do the numbers matter? Because an alarming number of Bahamians are living with diabetes and an alarming number don’t even know they have it. Knowing your health numbers is the starting point to taking control of your health!
