BENDIGO Community Health Services is offering free testing for type 2 diabetes as part of Seniors Week 2013.
“We really encourage anyone in the community to take advantage of the walk-in offer and receive a free Type 2 diabetes test," chief executive officer Kim Sykes said.
"It’s as simple as spending a small amount of time with one of our diabetes educators and filling out a short form.
“The great news is that Type 2 diabetes can often be managed with healthier eating and regular physical activity.”
A free barbecue lunch will also be held at the Long Gully Neighbourhood Centre on Friday from 11am.
