Gwinnett Outreach: building community

We’ve come a long way since Maj. Gen. Allen Daniel, of the Georgia Militia’s 4th Division, issued orders for a new and better fort to be built at Hog Mountain in October 1813. Gwinnett County was established five years later in 1818 and our residents have been making things new and better ever since. 

Prediabetes

Prediabetes

 Diabetes is one of the country’s fastest growing epidemics.  According to the CDC, 29 million Americans are affected with diabetes and 86 million are living with prediabetes.  Unfortunately, 90 percent of persons with prediabetes are unaware of their diagnosis. The good news you may ask?  Both conditions can be effectively managed with lifestyle changes.

Gwinnett Breast Cancer Awareness month kicks off in style

Lawrenceville – Saturday, Oct. 1 dawned sunny and a little cool, a perfect day for a walk.
