Wellness Event: Free Diabetes Testing for Staff
November 13, 2009 § Leave a comment
The Food Bank cares about the well-being of everyone we serve, including our staff. This morning, and as part of American Diabetes Month, our Wellness Committee organized free on-site diabetes testing.
Two nurses from El Buen Samaritano (a CAFB Partner Agency) generously donated their time and services. They encouraged participants to fast prior to their test. With a quick prick and a one-minute wait time, each person was tested and given their results. The nurses were extremely nice and helpful, providing each participating staff member with a comprehensive explanation of their test results.
“I appreciate this free service and am so thankful to work for an organization that supports our health. It [the test] was quick, and the nurse was friendly,” said Delta Garcia, Agency Relations Representative.
