Diabetes testing this Saturday at local Wal-Mart

Saturday, Sept. 18, the Sunnyside Wal-Mart store will host free diabetes screenings.

Wal-Mart customers are invited to participate in free blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure screenings from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The value of the tests is more than $75 and will be performed by certified medical technicians. Additionally, customers will receive free product samples and a complimentary diabetes resource book.

"With the rising obesity epidemic, diabetes awareness becomes even more critical," said Frank Segrave, vice president of the pharmacy division for Wal-Mart. "We have an opportunity to communicate the seriousness of diabetes to the millions of customers who visit our stores every week."

The diabetes screenings will be taking place this Saturday in all Wal-Mart stores across the nation.
