training for Diabetes Screening
Several of our members have been certified to conduct diabetes screening. This is a new project for the club. We intend to conduct several screenings in the future. These screenings help identify people at risk for diabetes (or those who already have it) by testing for blood glucose levels on the spot. Those who show elevated levels of blood glucose are given recommendations to follow up with a medical provider.
Here are our members attending the training in Port Charlotte.
Then see the photos below when we got re-trained in Punta Gorda.
