As the colder months approach, so does this year’s flu season, making it crucial for community members to take action in preventing influenza and its complications. For the month of October, the Greater Humboldt Park Community Diabetes Empowerment Center (DEC), in partnership with Walgreens, administered a total of 84 flu shots to community members. In addition to providing this free service, DEC provided basic heart screenings, nutrition education, cooking demonstration, physical activity and referrals.
