On Thursday, October 10th The Connecticut Convergence Institute hosted an educational Health Café on gestational diabetes at the Hartford Public Library in conjunction with the YWCA of Greater Hartford. The event’s topic was suggested by YWCA community members, and attracted over 40 attendees eager to learn more about diabetes.
Dr. Victor Fang, Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UConn Health enlightened the crowd with his engaging and informational keynote speech. Dr. Fang provided an easy to understand overview of gestational diabetes, the symptoms, and treatment. All Health Café attendees were provided a free dinner and giveaways.
We would like to thank the Aetna Foundation for making this event possible.
