On Wednesday, October 2nd our Diabetes Program brought the community together to be apart of Iowa’s Healthiest State Initiative. The Healthiest State Initiative promotes health and well-being by contributing to programs that make it easier for Iowans to live healthier. Iowa is #21 in the nation when it comes to being physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy. By taking part, the Diabetes Program held a walk/run in the morning at the Meskwaki High School for students and staff. In the evening, the program held a fun run for the whole community to participate in, which took place both inside and outside of the health clinic. The community fun run included rain, t-shirts, giveaways, and snacks.
