This past Saturday I attended a MediVan & Health Community Services Inc. flea market with free health screenings. They provided free blood pressure and blood glucose checks to anybody who showed up. There was also a mini flea market to try to raise funds to provide no cost healthcare to uninsured Broward County residents. ADW Diabetes was the only diabetic supply company there with a display.
Out of the all the diabetics that I met there, one particular family stood out the most. A young lady, along with her parents, approached our display, with a look of great interest on her face. I introduced myself and ADW Diabetes, and discovered that the father was a diabetic.
They had quite a dilemma too. In addition to being uninsured, the man could not meet his doctor’s testing requirements. Apparently, his doctor’s instructions were to test 4-5 times a day, but, due to their financial situation, he could only afford to test once in the morning and once before bedtime. As a diabetic myself, I realized it was vital for him to test as per his doctor’s orders, and the cost of supplies should not hinder his health. He was greatly relieved to find out about our company and the great discounts we offer on diabetic products.
This story is another example of how ADW Diabetes is dedicated to keeping diabetes self-management affordable, and helps everyday people maintain a healthy lifestyle.
