VMH to offer free blood sugar diabetes tests, blood pressure checks and “Be the Match” stem cell sampling at Taste of Lansing

Veterans Memorial Hospital will be offering free blood sugar testing and blood pressure checks with immediate results at the Taste of Lansing celebration Thursday, May 25.  The hospital’s display will be located in the Main Street Lansing office building.

“Be the Match” sampling will also be offered. This is the same program that Robyn Roberts from Good Morning America endorses following her own successful bone marrow transplant match 10 years ago. A blood stem cell donation can be a cure for blood cancer, sickle cell, and other deadly diseases. Many patients and their families are counting on drives like this to find their match. The process is simple and painless and will be available for all visitors ages 18-40.

For additional information, feel free to call Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411.
