Local health officials are sounding the alarm about an often undiagnosed disease -- diabetes. Here's your chance to get screened for free. As part of American Diabetes Alert Day, the ADA and St. Joseph's Hospital will offer free diabetes screenings at three locations.
  • 8 a.m. - 10a.m. SCI, 1929 Allen Parkway
  • 11a.m. - 1 p.m. The Continental Center I (lobby level) 1600 Smith
  • 2p.m. - 4p.m. Two Allen Center (lobby level) 1200 Smith
If left untreated, diabetes can lead to heart attack and stroke, kidney failure, blindness and amputations.
