Diabetes, Medicare will be addressed Monday

RICHMOND — The November Medical Monday will include two presentations – one about diabetes and another about insurance.

Erica Kretchman, D.O., Reid Endocrinology, will speak about “Taking Diabetes to Heart” to address how diabetes increases risk of heart attacks and strokes, and how to take steps to prevent them.

Terri Hamm will also share about the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). SHIP is a free health benefits counseling service for Medicare beneficiaries and their families or caregivers. The program is not affiliated with any insurance company or agency and does not sell insurance.

Medical Monday will begin at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11, at Central United Methodist Church, 1425 E. Main St., Richmond. It’s a program of Reid Health. To attend, RSVP Sharrie Harlin-Davis at 765-983-3000, ext. 4676.
