Free Blood Sugar and Blood Pressure Screening

Question Mark and Man StandingFriday, July 19th @ 10am
According to the American Diabetes Association, millions of Americans don't know they have diabetes. Prevention and treatment begins with knowing whether or not you know you suffer from high blood sugar.

The Anastasia Island Branch Library is partnering with Flagler Hospital to provide free blood sugar and blood pressure screenings. This will take place at the Anastasia Island Branch Library on Friday, July 19th between 10am and 12pm.  Tests will be administered on a first-come-first-serve basis, and no fasting is required prior to testing.
