The Clinton School of Public Service will host a discussion on diabetes facilitated by students and alumni next Tuesday, February 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Clinton School's Sturgis Hall. Seats can be reserved by emailing publicprograms@clintonschool.uasys.edu or calling (501) 683-5239.

Press release from the Clinton School: 

According to the latest statistics available through the Centers for Disease Control, from 1994 to 2013, the percent of adults in Arkansas diagnosed with diabetes more than doubled – from approximately 5% to over 11%. This community conversation will bring Arkansans together to talk about how to best address this growing and costly disease in our communities and our state. Following a brief presentation about the research that went into developing the discussion guide that will be used, participants will engage in a discussion facilitated by Clinton School students and alumni to explore various approaches to addressing diabetes in Arkansas. Light refreshments will be served.

The event will also be live streamed
