Free Diabetic Screenings and Education Services at Brookhaven Town Hall

Town Seal

Farmingville, NY – -On July 29, the Town of Brookhaven co-sponsored free diabetic screenings and education services at Town Hall in Farmingville with Sun River Health and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County (CCE Suffolk). Sun River Health’s Mobile Diabetes Screening Clinic is equipped with two air-conditioned private exam rooms. Their staff offered a simple blood test, hemoglobin A1C, that measures average blood sugar levels over the past three months and provides results in approximately five minutes. A Registered Dietician (RD) from the CCE Suffolk Diabetes Program met one-on-one to review test results and answer diabetes related questions. Also, on-hand was a nutritionist from SNAP-Education who demonstrated a tasty, budget friendly recipe, while sharing healthy eating tips, resources and healthy recipes. For more information, please call Samantha Gleeson, Sun River Public Health RN, at 845-745-4751 or email sagleeson@sunriver.org.
