PROVIDENCE, RI – Here at Urban Health Watch, we know it’s not always easy to get our health information from experts and practitioners. Some of us are hands-on problem solvers, some of us like research projects, and some of us are visual learners. In recognition of and service to those in the third group, UrbanHealthWatch.net is hosting a special movie viewing and community health discussion on Saturday, April 10. The film and discussion will be part of the Live Empowered! Diabetes Awareness Day, happening from 10 AM – 3 PM at The Urban League of Rhode Island, 246 Prairie Ave.

Community members who come for the film will be encouraged to pursue screenings and consultations on-site from the experts who are part of the Diabetes Awareness Event. Those who attend for diabetes tests and information are encouraged to attend to learn additional strategies about staying healthy and to hear from another network of experts and providers.

The film will start at 11:30 AM, and this will be a chance to meet and greet with producers of Urban Health Watch and hear other pertinent news and updates on health care. There will also be free giveaways and healthy refreshments.
