Diabetes is a disease that has no cure, and many of our employees suffer from this disease. We at UTHSC and other areas are working hard to find that cure. The university, in its support and recognition of those with diabetes, will celebrate Denim for Diabetes Day, Thursday September 18, 2014. Employees who purchase a Denim for Diabetes patch for $5.00 will be allowed to wear jeans to work to honor those who have diabetes. Patches are on sale now at 920 Madison 300A, RM 322 or by calling Patricia “Trish” Hill at (901) 448-5318. Let’s TURN UTHSC BLUE on 9/18/14. Funds raised will go to the American Diabetes Association for research.
