Hy-Vee Dietitians Host Virtual Events In April Focused On Diabetes Health


Throughout April, Hy-Vee’s team of registered dietitians will host free virtual events – including store tours and live classes – to provide education about ways to shop and snack to help manage diabetes symptoms.

West Des Moines, Iowa-based Hy-Vee dietitians will conduct 1,000 free A1C screenings throughout the month at more than 40 store locations. Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test that individuals living with diabetes use to manage their blood glucose levels by providing information about that individual’s average levels of blood glucose over a 2- to 3-month period. Appointments are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Limited screenings are available.

Hy-Vee dietitians will host live classes on their telehealth platform to debunk common diabetes food myths and provide customers with the basic facts of diabetes management. Likewise, Hy-Vee dietitians will share quick and easy low-carb snacks to incorporate into daily meal plans to help encourage healthy lifestyles. The “Diabetes Myths, Facts and Low-Carb Snacks” classes will be offered 10 times throughout the month.

Hy-Vee dietitians will lead diabetes virtual store tours at select Hy-Vee locations, while sharing the basics of carb counting, highlighting products to incorporate into a daily routine, lower carb substitutions and dietitian favorite food brands that shoppers can find at Hy-Vee. The diabetes virtual store tours will be offered 10 times throughout the month.

Register for any of the free events by searching your location at hy-vee.com/health/hy-vee-dietitians/default.aspx. Classes are offered throughout April, by appointment only.
