LUBBOCK,TX (KCBD) - Diabetes is becoming so common that officials predict it will show up in 1 out of every 3 people born after the year 2,000.
Tuesday is Diabetes Alert Day, to help find those people at risk so they can be treated early. Texas Tech Health Sciences Center is sponsoring several free screenings this month. Two screenings are set for Tuesday, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Fire station number 4 at 2504 Cornell or fire station 5 located at 1101 Zenith Avenue will have the screenings for free.
