Screening Events

Another development, based on new technology, is the use of portable A1c devices as a method of screening for diabetes.

Direct measurement of A1c offers advantages over current screening approaches using questionnaires or random fingerstick blood sugar measurements.

We have used this approach in screening large numbers of at-risk individuals in a variety of settings, including local cultural fairs, retail outlets, and others.
