Sam’s Club Offers Free Diabetes Health Screenings Event

DETROIT (WWJ) –  On Saturday, Sept. 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., every Sam’s Club that has a pharmacy will be offering free diabetes health screenings for their members embers and the public, available to both adults and children.

According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 26 million U.S. adults and children have diabetes, and an additional 79 million people are considered pre-diabetic. As the prevalence of diabetes continues to grow, a few simple screening tests can easily and proactively expose the status of your diabetic health.

The free screenings will include glucose, A1C, blood pressure and BMI tests, typically valued at more than $150. Early detection and treatment for diabetes can help people lower their risk of serious complications that can include stroke, heart disease, blindness, amputation and kidney failure.
