    Community Diabetes Screenings
    Spring 2014

    Join Lifespan Community Health Services, the Hallett Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology and Gateway Healthcare for free diabetes screenings throughout April, May and June.

    Nearly 20 percent of African American adults, and 13 percent of Latino adults, have diagnosed or undiagnosed diabetes. Heart-damaging dyslipidemia and hypertension are also more prevalent among minority communities. 

    Don't let diabetes sneak up on you!

    Early detection and action can reduce negative outcomes, but these conditions do not always exhibit symptoms, making it necessary for anyone with risk factors to get regular screenings.
