The Outer Banks Hospital is offering free A1C diabetes screening pop-ups throughout Dare County this month. A1C screenings measure a person’s blood glucose level over the past three months. Here is their schedule:

  • July 12, 2021- 10:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Kill Devil Hills Library
  • July 12, 2021- 2:00-4:30 p.m. at the Manteo Library

Walk-ins are welcome. For more information, call the Outer Banks Hospital at (252)449-4529.

These free screening events are open to any Dare County resident, property owner or visitor age 18 or older. No appointment is necessary. A1C screenings measure an individual’s blood glucose level over the past three months.

Upon arrival at their library location of choice, staff members will direct participants to the screening area. When it is a participant’s time to be tested, a simple finger stick blood sample will be taken. The results of the test only take a few minutes to receive, and hospital staff members will go over the test results with the individual who was tested within a few minutes of the sample being taken.

For more information about the A1C prediabetes screening program, contact Brittany Raffa with The Outer Banks Hospital’s Center for Healthy Living at 252-449-4529 or brittany.raffa@theobh.com.
