Free Walk-In Diabetes and Hypertension Screening
To help raise awareness about the high incidence of Diabetes and Hypertension in St Vincent and the Grenadines MCT teamed up with Greaves Supermarkets and the Retired Nurses’ Association to conduct free testing. As of August 2012 free walk-in testing takes place monthly in the three Greaves Supermarket locations. Those who were tested welcomed this MCT initiative and expressed appreciation for the advice on healthy lifestyle changes. By April 2016 almost 6,000 people had used this free service which has undoubtedly saved lives and amputations.
It is the long term goal to offer free testing more frequently. To achieve this goal we will need your continued support.
