Country singer-songwriter RaeLynn burst onto the music scene in 2012 after placing third in “The Voice” musical competition in 2012. Born into a musical family, she discovered her love for country singing at age 12 – the same age at which she was diagnosed with diabetes. On Monday, April 9, RaeLynn will bring her message of living well with diabetes to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, at a special diabetes awareness event in the Hallowell Conference Center.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with exhibits from companies involved in diabetes care and services until RaeLynn will speak at 7:00 p.m. on her personal diabetes journey. Coming to Delmarva courtesy of Novo Nordisk, a global health care company dedicated to diabetes care, RaeLynn’s mission is to raise awareness of the importance of properly managing blood sugar levels. She wants to demonstrate to others living with diabetes that the condition should not hinder them from following their dreams but instead can be integrated into their lives and ambitions. RaeLynn actually credits her diabetes with helping her take better care of herself, and says she is grateful her diagnosis has taught her how to live a healthy lifestyle.
Free parking and free valet service will be available and everyone is welcome to attend. The Hallowell Conference Center is accessible via the Hanna Outpatient Entrance of Peninsula Regional Medical Center; take the elevator to the ground floor. To register, please call Peninsula Regional Nutrition & Diabetes Education at 410-543-7061. There is no cost to attend.
