World Diabetes Day Screening

Blue Lighting Start Date: November 13, 2020
End Date: November 13, 2020
Location: 597, West 11th Street, Panama City, Florida, 32401, United States

We hosted a public screening for diabetes using A1C testing kits. Anyone who was not in target range, was offered classes either DPP or DSME, at no cost. Handouts included the meaning of World Diabetes Day taken from your website and an explanation of the blue light with a request to place a blue light on their porch for tomorrow. We gave out goody bags with information, salad shakers, water bottles and of course blue lights. News coverage was there and most of our participants came from watching the noonday news. Hopefully tomorrow, Bay county will have a blue glow!
