People of color are more at risk for diabetes. The University Health Center and Gaughan Multicultural Center will educate UNL students about diabetes and offer free blood draws.
Dr. Daniel Garrett, UHC physician, will give a presentation about diabetes in the minority population and what you can do to prevent it at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 23
in the Gaughan Multicultural Center, Ubuntu Room (202).
On Jan. 26 from 8-10 a.m., the UHC medical clinic and laboratory will provide free blood draws for UNL students to test for prediabetes. The blood test checks fasting blood sugar, an indicator of anemia and cholesterol. Prior to the blood draw:
•Do not eat anything after midnight; water only until blood is drawn
•Blood draws are between 8-10 a.m. in the Gaughan Multicultural Center, Unity Room (212).
•All students will receive a letter regarding lab results
•Those with abnormal lab work will receive call from a UHC nurse to schedule an appointment with either Dr. Nate Haecker, Dr. Daniel Garrett or Terry Thomas, APRN
•A light breakfast will be served following the blood draw
If you have any questions, contact the UHC at 402-472-5000.
