NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Tackling Diabetes is the theme for Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital's Diabetes Month activities.

"We'll have diabetes information, and we'll have diabetes screenings,” said Kim Barton, the hospital’s community relations director. “We're going to be offering a free A 1 C, an instant A1C screening that is a test that monitors what you've been doing, what your body has been experiencing for a 3-month period."

Nacogdoches Memorial Health will offer the free Diabetes Health Fair on November 19. You'll find it across from the alumni tent from 12:30 to 2:30 at the SFA football game.
