WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (Nov. 2, 2018) — In honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month, Hy-Vee, Inc. will provide free Hemoglobin A1C screenings throughout its eight-state region during the month of November.

The free Hemoglobin A1C screenings will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobiles in 168 Hy-Vee store parking lots. Hy-Vee registered dietitians will conduct a simple blood test, and review the results with individuals immediately following the test.

Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test that individuals living with diabetes use to manage their blood glucose levels, and provides information about an individual’s average levels of blood glucose over a two- to three-month period.

The following organizations helped make the screenings possible: Cabot, Chobani, Dexcom, McKesson, Novo Nordisk, Omax Health, OneTouch, Smart Chicken, Sola and Stemilt.
