MEND fellows and faculty at dinner during the ENDO 2013 Annual Meeting


Fellows volunteer at the Annual U-M Diabetes Health Fair

Each year, during National Diabetes Awareness Month and as close as possible to the United Nations' World Diabetes Day (Nov. 14), the Division hosts a large diabetes health fair for the public. All free, including many types of health screenings, the U-M Diabetes Health Fair has become a significant resource for those who don't have insurance or are under-insured. An important part of the free health screenings is the Doctor Consultation Table, where attendees can get advice and explanations of their screening results.At the fair on November 16, 2013, fellow Tim Bodnar, M.D. (pictured below, right) participated as one of the doctors giving consultations along with MEND Assistant Professor Jennifer Wyckoff, M.D. (pictured below, left). Thanks for your service, Tim!
