Free Glucose Screenings on WOW
Wyandot Memorial Hospital’s Wyandot On Wheels is offering free fingerstick glucose screenings this November in recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month.
In addition to the fingerstick tests for glucose, nurse educators will provide diabetic foot exams and one-on-one consultations with individuals to answer questions and share resources.
The WOW visits are scheduled throughout the county on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The bus is parked just north of the square in Sycamore on the first Wednesday of each month. On the second Wednesday, WOW is at the Forest VFW. The bus travels to the Nevada United Methodist Church on the third Wednesday, and the fourth Wednesday of every month finds WOW at the Harpster Township Hall. The Carey Senior Depot hosts WOW every Thursday.
Wyandot On Wheels offers lab draws for blood tests and community health screenings. The physician-ordered lab draws are billed to patients’ insurances. The screenings are a special outreach offering of the hospital for low-cost services that are important indicators for disease and health status.
In addition to blood draws, WOW Coordinator Michelle Gullifer offers free blood pressure checks and schedules screening mammograms for early detection of cancer. She welcomes phone calls (419-294-4991, extension 1969), emails (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visits to WOW for more information about the community visits or monthly specials.
