The Tehachapi Lions Club invites the community to attend an informational meeting in observation of National Diabetes Awareness Month featuring Dr. James Sproul of Kaiser Permanente at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Tehachapi Senior Center, 500 E. F St.

Each November, communities across America observe National Diabetes Awareness Month to bring attention to diabetes and its impact on millions of Americans. Living with diabetes can be challenging to manage every day. 

It is the hope of Lions Club members to raise awareness about diabetes risk factors and to encourage people to make healthy changes. A free dinner will be provided by the Lions. Individuals planning to attend are asked to R.S.V.P. by calling 823-1981.
