I got screened

Friday afternoon almost 40 Terrell area residents took advantage of the Health Mart Healthy Living Tour and got screened for diabetes. In addition to the diabetes screening, they also provided blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose testing.

Since I am the type of person who only goes to the doctor when I get hurt or have a pain, this was perfect for me. The tests only take about 5 minutes, and thankfully mine came back fine.

There are over 2800 Health Mart Pharmacies across the country, only 120 were selected to get a visit by the Healthy Living Tour. The Terrell Health Mart pharmacists greeted people with snow cones and snacks and were available to answer any questions. The Terrell Health Mart is located at 642 N Rockwall St. in Terrell.

The tour continues next weekend at the North Texas State Fair in Denton. Check the tour schedule to see when they stop in your area.
