Throughout the year, CHS hosts several other community events and programs to shed light on the diabetes epidemic and diabetes prevention.

It is also supportive of any individual with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Coplin Health Systems will offer this program in Jackson County at the Jackson County Junior Fairgrounds beginning in June. Participants will receive free local fruits and vegetables, health screenings, and health education.
