No cost diabetes screening available Tuesday at Jackson Lincoln Pool

A1C

QUINCY — People ages 18 and older are invited to Jackson Lincoln Pool, 701 N. 8th, on Tuesday for a no-cost A1C test and blood pressure screening, conducted by Blessing Health System. The health screenings will be done between 5:30 and 7 p.m. Results will be available at the event. Registration is not required.

The A1C blood test provides a picture of a person’s average blood sugar level over the past two to three months. The higher the levels, the greater the person’s risk of developing diabetes complications.

An accurate blood pressure reading provides information on a person’s risk for heart disease and stroke.

The health screenings are held in conjunction with an Arts Quincy summer concert at Jackson Lincoln Pool, sponsored by Blessing Health System.
