As a part of its continued commitment toward health and wellness, United Supermarkets (United) has partnered with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to generate awareness, raise funds and provide guests with free screenings.
In recognition of ADA Alert Day, held Tuesday, March 27, the ADA will be conducting free diabetes screenings for all interested guests at Lubbock Amigos and Market Street locations from 4 to 7 p.m.
Additionally, United Supermarkets' registered dietitians will be conducting Easy Diabetes Shopping tours at both Market Street locations at 6:30 p.m. to help guests support their nutritional needs. All interested guests must pre-register for the tour by visiting Market Street online.
"Diabetes is an increasing concern with more than 30,300 people in Lubbock County suffering from the disease," said Robin Hawkins, MS, RD, LD, United health and wellness director. "By partnering with the ADA, we hope to arm our guests with the knowledge to combat this disease."
From March 21 to April 3, United Supermarkets guests will have the opportunity to help raise money for diabetes research by purchasing Stop Diabetes scan tags for as little as $1, with all proceeds going to the ADA.
