GOUVERNEUR, N.Y. Kinney Drugs will offer free glucose testing at its stores in Vermont under a partnership with six local hospitals, the regional retail pharmacy chain announced Thursday.
All of Kinney’s stores in Vermont will have a diabetes clinic on March 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The clinic includes a test to determine whether customers are at risk, a finger-stick blood glucose test and diabetes education. Customers also will receive free samples and a "How to Live Well with Diabetes" booklet from the Vermont Health Department.
“We are very grateful for the relationship we have with our local community health agencies,” Kinney marketing manager Penny Perrone-Gray said. “Combined with their expertise in the diabetes field and our pharmacists’ medication knowledge, the program will be very informational to those who may be at risk of developing diabetes.”
