Free Diabetes Screening

Free diabetes screenings will be held at Paul D. Camp Community College’s Franklin Campus, 100 North College Drive, on Tuesday, April 17, from 1 to 3 p.m. Dr. Joseph Aloi and Samantha L. Hines, M.S.Ed., at the Strelitz Diabetes Center at Eastern Virginia Medical School, are currently conducting a research study that focuses on diabetes education for individuals in the Western Tidewater region.

 

They are offering the screenings to members of the Franklin community over the age of 18. The screenings will include blood pressure, blood glucose level and hemoglobin A1C checks, and cholesterol testing, and will help identify individuals that may benefit from follow-up telephone contact by one of their certified diabetes educators.
