Blood Glucose Testing at Your Door

The Christian Hospital Diabetes Screening Team is available to come to your company, offering diabetes testing and educational opportunities.

Regardless of the size of your company, you're affected by diabetes. Nearly 21 million Americans have diabetes, and 41 million Americans are pre-diabetic. More than 1.5 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in 2005, and six million Americans have diabetes and don't know it.

The annual cost of diabetes on employees and businesses totals $132 billion. You can use the Christian Hospital Diabetes Screening Team to cut your health care costs, increase productivity and decrease absenteeism while improving the health of your employees.

With 63 percent of the St. Louis city and county population classified as either overweight or obese, chances are greatly increased that a greater proportion of diabetes diagnoses will be seen in this area.

Look at your employees' health, and encourage them to subscribe to BJC's free monthly e-newsletter or call us at 314.747.7234.
