This article aims to show that registered pharmacists are capable of identifying patients at risk of diabetes. The responsibility of the pharmacists as healthcare professionals is to continue to do as many screenings as possible in order to identify at-risk patients and refer them to their primary care provider. With this in mind, many pharmacies in the greater Kansas City area combined efforts to conduct diabetes screenings throughout the area and outlying communities. Data from the study substantiate the fact that many individuals may be living with undetected diabetes.
