Hy-Vee to provide free A1C screenings in November
In honor of National Diabetes Month, Hy-Vee is offering free Hemoglobin A1C screenings throughout its eight-state region during November.
The free Hemoglobin A1C screenings will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobiles in 160 Hy-Vee store parking lots. Hy-Vee registered dietitians will conduct a simple blood test, and review the results with individuals immediately following the test.
Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test that individuals living with diabetes use to manage their blood glucose levels, and provides information about an individual’s average levels of blood glucose over a two- to three-month period.
Hy-Vee said that the screenings were made possible by the following organizations helped make the screenings possible: Fat Rabbit, Glucerna, Cabot, Good Idea, Novo Nordisk, Quaker, and Think.
