Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton (BID-Milton) will hold its 10th annual spring Diabetes Fair on April 6th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lantana in Randolph.

This year's event includes presentations from a panel of doctors and a physical therapist on the latest in diabetes care, including diabetes effects on the heart and hearing.

The panel includes BID-Milton endocrinologist Ioana Fat, M.D.; cardiologist Apranta Deka-Patel, M.D.; ear, nose and throat specialist Edward Reardon, M.D., and physical therapist Therese Robiinson, PT.

The fair will also feature free blood pressure screenings, foot evaluations, information about local diabetes programs and products, and a complimentary diabetic friendly lunch.

"This event is an excellent opportunity for diabetics and their loved ones to learn more about the condition from a panel of experts," said William Cobb, M.D., endocrinologist and chair of the event. "There is a wealth of experience available at the fair and something of value for everyone."

This event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required since space is limited. To register, call 617-696-8810.
