FIMRC hopes to continuing building upon our diabetes outreach work, and a larger supply of glucometer strips and lancets, allows staff and volunteers to reach a greater number of at-risk community members.
Early testing for diabetes is crucial and many community members often don’t know they have diabetes until late-stage symptoms appear. FIMRC aims to provide early screening by testing community members’ blood sugar levels in our risk assessment screening. Donations to this project will provide an opportunity for many struggling communities to cover the costs of glucometer strips and lancets.
