Preventing and managing diabetes will be the focus of a health festival this weekend at Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center.

The 21st Annual Health & Diabetes Fest will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday in the hospital lobby, 2075 E. Flamingo Road. This year’s event will be hosted by Ironman Triathlete, motivational speaker and Type 1 diabetic Jay Hewitt.

The Health & Diabetes Fest offers several free screenings and assessments to help people with diabetes better manage it and help others to prevent it. A variety of free and low-cost screenings will be available; all lab work requires eight hours of fasting.
