The annual Diabetes & Wound Care Fair at Alton's Saint Clare's Hospital will take place Saturday. This year's free event will feature a number of booths with the latest information about the disease, medical equipment, and screenings. Dr. John Lindsay, an Alton podiatrist, will also be giving a limited number of diabetic foot screenings.
Community Outreach Nurse Tammy Stillwell says your feet are often a good indicator that you need to be checked for diabetes.
The fair will take place on the ground floor of the hospital from 9am until noon. It is easiest to access through the old Emergency Room doors. For more information or to register for the screenings, call 465-2264.
