Jun. 10, 2013 @ 05:39 PM


Continuing its community outreach efforts in Warren County, Maria Parham Medical Center is set to host a free Snacks & Facts program June 21, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Francis Aniekwensi, MD, of Beckford Medical Center, will present a program entitled “Living with Diabetes,” which will focus on how those with disease can maintain good health.

The event will take place at the Warrenton Rural Volunteer Fire Department. Attendees will be served lunch at 11:30 a.m.: the presentation will follow. Afterwards, Aniekwensi will conduct a question and answer session. Attendees can also expect handouts and giveaways.

Despite that fact that the event and the meal are free, those planning to attend should RSVP Jeannie at (252) 436-1401 no later than June 20, at 2 p.m., so that arrangements for the meal may be made.

Call backs for reservations will not be possible due to call volume; however, attendees should still leave their name and the number of people in their party. Those who cannot ultimately attend should call back to cancel their reservations.
