Mil Gracias to all those who made the first annual Stop Diabetes Walk and free diabetes health screenings event a success! Volunteers included Donna Ortiz and her Dreammakers Health Career Club at Robertson High School; Christina Lovato and the Semillas de Salud Health Career Club at West Las Vegas High School; and El Centro Family Health staff and providers, including Jenna Schipporeit, Marian McAdams, Chris Ruge, Angela Baumeister, April Valdez, and Vincent Ruiz.
Gracias to Timothy Martinez and the band Home Cookin’ for the live music.
Gracias to the Las Vegas Fire Department for assisting with traffic.
Special thanks to the Project HOPE team who brought their mobile clinic to Las Vegas for the event.
These volunteers did a great service toward stopping diabetes in our community. Over 30 people participated in the walking event and over 75 people received free health screenings and/or information regarding prevention of diabetes.
