To the Editor:

Cancer Services Program & Diabetes Prevention Program pampered their medical provider’s staff on Monday, March 31.

Guests nibbled tasty treats, sipped on fun mock-tails, put their feet up, relaxed with manicures, pedicures, facials, massages, and won door prizes donated by our fine vendors.

This event was held to show our appreciation for their services, for all that they do for our CSP & DPP participants, and to provide updates with the program’s new guidelines.

The Cancer Services Program (CSP) of St. Lawrence County, funded through NYS Department of Health, serves individuals who either have no insurance or are under-insured. Eligible participants are provided with free breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screenings. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is funded through the NYS Office of Rural Health. This free lifestyle modification program is open to adults diagnosed as pre-diabetic and/ or those considered at high risk for pre-diabetes.

We would like to thank the following folks, who made the evening possible and a great success:
