To promote Diabetes Awareness Month in November, the Diabetes Coalition at Fresno State will host a free diabetes screening for the campus community from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Speakers Platform north of the Madden Library. The screening includes assessing hemoglobin A1c’s, which determines blood sugar levels and will require a finger prick and a small sample of blood. Diabetes affects more than 2.3 million adults in California and is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. The Diabetes Coalition comprises students majoring in dietetics, nursing and public health. In addition to the diabetes screening, students will also provide nutrition outreach and education on diabetes to those who are screened for pre-diabetes or are diabetic.
