Diabetes and Nutrition Expo

In an abundance of caution, CHI Saint Joseph Health has canceled our upcoming fifth annual Diabetes and Nutrition Expo, which was originally scheduled for this Saturday, March 14, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This decision was made due to recommendations from the governor's office about large events with regard to concerns about novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The health of our community is a top priority for CHI Saint Joseph Health, and we are closely monitoring all developments surrounding COVID-19. Find more information and resources regarding COVID-19.
