Teaming up to beat diabetes
Mountain View VOICE

Dozens of people showed up at the doors of Community Services Agency on Tuesday, some arriving an hour early, to get screened for diabetes. It may not sound like an occasion to get excited about, but needy residents of Mountain View appeared eager to take advantage of a new program that takes on diabetes and fights the root causes of the disease.

The program, called Challenge Diabetes, is a four month-long pilot program where people, free of charge, can come in and get their blood sugar tested for diabetes and pre-diabetes.
