Oklahomans interested in learning more about diabetes can undergo free health screenings this week.

A national diabetes awareness tour kicks off Tuesday in Norman and Del City.

The screenings will take place at four Oklahoma pharmacies this week.

The Health Mart Healthy Living Tour is on the road to recognize community pharmacists for the role they play as health care providers in their communities, helping to educate and counsel people managing diabetes.

Tour staff will travel on a 40-foot mobile screening unit to offer free health screenings that include blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C tests.

The tour begins from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at Dave's Health Mart Pharmacy, 329 N Porter Ave. in Norman.

Its next stop will be from 3 to 6 p.m. at Lassiter Drug, 3252 SE 29 St. in Del City.

• 3 to 6 p.m. at Camp Pharmacy Health Mart, 1 Medical Plaza, in Ratliff City.

The Health Mart Healthy Living Tour will visit more than 70 pharmacies nationwide.

The tour aims to raise awareness of the growing diabetes epidemic, a disease that affects about 26 million Americans.

All are welcome to attend the event.
