In collaboration with East Islip High School’s new Medical and Health Technology Career Academy, Unity Pharmacy of East Islip will be offering free monthly workshops to provide students, faculty and community residents with an educational program tackling such medical issues as diabetes, heart health, high and low blood sugar, weight loss, and nutrition.
“The purpose of the workshops program is to provide the residents of the Town of Islip with the proper information so they can take care of themselves now, in order to avoid medical complications that can affect their senior years,” said Medical and Health Technology Career Academy director Israel Malinowitzer. “For example, it’s important for everyone to understand why diabetes is so dangerous and how if it is not properly treated, it can cause many other serious conditions that will ultimately endanger the remainder of someone’s life.”
The workshops, all to be held at 7:30 p.m. in the high school’s library, will be conducted by Unity Pharmacy owner Bob Matalia. Up first on Tuesday, Sept. 11 was “Overview of Diabetes,” to be followed by “Reducing Your Heart Risk” on Oct. 24. A full schedule of the medical workshops is attached below.
