DOH to Host 3rd Annual Wheel-Out Event
Get Fit! Bring your Bicycles, Scooters, Roller Blades… etc.

In recognition of American Diabetes Month, the Virgin Islands Department of Health and its community partners will be hosting the 3rd Annual “WHEEL OUT.” The purpose of this event is to promote physical activity and healthy eating while educating the community on prevention measures and diabetes management. Families are invited to come out with any non-motorized vehicle (scooters, bicycles, skateboards, baby strollers, etc.) to enjoy a family day out.

The American Diabetes Association recognizes the month of November as American Diabetes Month, where the nation is encouraged to focus its efforts on diabetes and the tens of millions of people affected by it. This year’s theme is, “This Is Diabetes.”
