Hy-Vee dietitians to offer free A1C screenings in April

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee Inc. will provide 2,000 free A1C screenings in April at select Hy-Vee stores throughout its eight-state region, the company said Wednesday.

This simple blood test measures average blood sugar levels over the past three months. This is a common test used to identify prediabetes or diabetes. Registration is required for the free A1C screening and can be done online. Once registered, a local Hy-Vee dietitian will reach out to schedule a screening based on availability. Free A1C screenings are only available while supplies last and are provided in partnership with Embecta, PB2, Chobani, Liquid IV and Pacific Coast Producers. A list of Hy-Vee locations offering the screening can be found below.

Additionally, Hy-Vee dietitians will offer additional events throughout the month to support customers’ wellness journeys:

 Free Dietitian Discovery Session

Individuals can jumpstart their health journey by scheduling a complimentary discovery session with a Hy-Vee registered dietitian to learn about the different services available and choose the right individual program for their wellness journey.
