Pekin Hospital to Offer Free Diabetes Screening

In honor of American Diabetes Month, Pekin Hospital will offer a Diabetes Screening on Tuesday, November 27 from 8 – 10 a.m. inside the Hospital Lobby. Fasting is not required to participate in the screening and reservations are not needed to participate.

Did you know that preventing diabetes is easier than you think? Being proactive about your health can lead to a healthier and longer life for yourself and your family. As a famous English author once stated, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of a cure.”

According to the American Diabetes Association, each year 1.6 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older. Don’t allow yourself to join in this growing statistic. By making subtle changes to your lifestyle, you can be proactive in preventing diabetes.

This screening event is being held this November in support of American Diabetes Month and to educate Pekin and surrounding communities about the simple steps that can help prevent diabetes. Take action and partner with Pekin Hospital as your number one valued source of healthcare that will help shape your path to a healthier, better you!

For more information, please call (309) 353-0662.
