Diabetic Detection (Clinic - 29 April 1960)
Eight out of 214 area people who were tested at a diabetic detection clinic here last Friday showed positive blood sugar, according to a report from the clinic.
The clinic, first of its kind held in Clark County, was conducted under the sponsorship of the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. Road conditions - worst in many years - probably resulted in a number of people not taking advantage of the clinic; but the committee in charge was pleased with the number of registrations.
Each of the persons tested will receive a report by letter. The eight showing positive tests will be advised to seek medical help, according to Mrs. Clarence (Peg) Bremer, chairman.
Those helping in preparing for and conducting the clinic included: Mrs. Lois Guest, publicity chairman; Constance Holum, registration chairman; Mrs. Buddy Langreck, who had charge of testing; Dr. Kenneth F. Manz, medical advisor; Memorial Hospital staff: and Hattie Winton, Mrs. John Temte, Mrs. Dorothy Scott, Mrs. Velma Keller, Mrs. Ella Stucki, Mrs. Cora Thomsen, Mrs. Kenneth Manz, Mrs. Kurt Franke, Mrs. Rose Bollom, Paula Mueller, Mrs. William Hrasky and Lorraine Schneider.
A similar clinic may be held during national diabetes week, in November, or during the winter, Mrs. Bremer said.
