Throughout the month of April, Hy-Vee’s team of registered dietitians will host free virtual events – including store tours and live classes – to provide education about ways to shop and snack to help manage diabetes symptoms.

Hy-Vee dietitians will conduct 1,000 free A1C screenings throughout the month at more than 40 store locations. Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test that individuals living with diabetes use to manage their blood glucose levels by providing information about that individual’s average levels of blood glucose over a 2- to 3-month period.  Appointments are assigned on a first-come, first served basis. Limited screenings are available.

Hy-Vee dietitians will host live classes on their telehealth platform to debunk common diabetes food myths and provide customers with the basic facts of diabetes management. Hy-Vee dietitians will share quick and easy low-carb snacks to incorporate into daily meal plans to help encourage healthy lifestyles. The “Diabetes Myths, Facts and Low-Carb Snacks” classes will be offered 10 times throughout the month.

Hy-Vee dietitians will lead diabetes virtual store tours at select Hy-Vee locations, while sharing the basics of carb counting, highlighting products to incorporate into a daily routine, lower carb substitutions, and dietitian favorite food brands that shoppers can find at Hy-Vee. The diabetes virtual store tours will be offered 10 times throughout the month.

Consumers can register for any of the free events by searching their location here. Classes are offered throughout the month of April, by appointment only.
