To celebrate Diabetes Awareness Month, Waldo County General Hospital will be offering free cholesterol and glucose screenings from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 5; Tuesdays, Nov. 6 and 13; Wednesdays, Nov. 7 and 14; and Thursday, Nov. 15.

The screening provides a full lipid profile and glucose level and requires fasting (with only water allowed). The screening cannot be done if you have not fasted for 10 hours.

Following the finger stick screening, your results will be explained to you and can be sent to your doctor if you request.

The screening takes approximately 10 minutes each so pre-registration is required. Call Barbara Crowley at 930-2650 to pre-register.
