Diabetes is topic of Nov. 14 Breakfast Health Promotion Seminar

The School of Nursing at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will hold its seventh Breakfast Health Promotion Seminar from 7:45 to 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the San Antonio Country Club, 4100 N. New Braunfels. Theresa de la Haya, vice president of the community health division of the University Center for Community Health and a member of the School of Nursing's Advisory Council, will be the guest speaker. She will discuss "Improvements in the Care and Prevention of Diabetes in the New Millennium."

De la Haya has served in upper management and administration in the health care field for more than 15 years. She earned her bachelor's degree from the Health Science Center and her master's degree in public health from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. She is pursuing her doctorate in public health from the same institution. She has received numerous awards and this year was inducted into the San Antonio Women's Hall of Fame.

The Nursing Advisory Council established the Breakfast Health Promotion Seminar series in 1998 in an effort to share with the San Antonio community the latest in health-care research issues, and to increase community awareness of the School of Nursing and its educational programs and research.

Cost to attend the breakfast is $20 per person. Seminar proceeds will be used to promote nursing scholarship at all levels within the School of Nursing. For more information, call (210) 567-3833.
