Blood glucose checks Friday at Beatitudes

ONU’s HealthWise Pharmacy will be at Beatitudes tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 14, between 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., offering blood glucose checks to patrons.  

A blood glucose screening checks the level of glucose (sugar) in your blood stream – too high or too low glucose could indicate a serious medical condition, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

These checks are part of a partnership between Beatitudes community center and Ohio Northern University’s HealthWise Pharmacy, offering free health screenings to residents in the community, according to Deb Curlis of Beatitudes, and Dr. Clay Miller of HealthWise.

The screenings will be every Friday through May, between 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Here’s the monthly schedule for the screenings:
First Friday of the month:
   Blood pressure checks
Second Friday of the month:
  Blood glucose checks
Third Friday of the month:
   Bone density screenings

The partnership will also provide free vitamins to participants.

Beatitudes community center is located at 210 N. Main St., Ada. Persons with questions may contact Dr. Miller at 419-722-2299 or at c-miller.16@onu.edu.
