During American Diabetes Month, Baptist Health Offering Free A1C Screenings in Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – During American Diabetes Month in November, Baptist Health Community Outreach will provide free A1C screenings to the community at its office building in Little Rock, 10117 Kanis Road.

The screenings will be Thursday, Nov. 11, and Thursday, Nov. 18, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 

More than 34 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, and 1 in 5 of them don’t know they have it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The A1C test can identify prediabetes, which raises your risk for diabetes. It can be used to diagnose diabetes. The simple blood test results give you a picture of your average blood sugar level over the past two to three months.

To schedule an appointment, call Baptist Health Community Outreach at (501) 202-1540.
