This paper presents the results of a community screening program conducted by nurses in northern New Mexico. Seven hundred and ninety-nine persons were screened for diabetes following American Diabetes Association guidelines. Screening procedures included having participants complete a questionnaire and testing them for capillary blood glucose levels. Initial results found a 5.7% positive screening rate. A large proportion of those who tested positive (80%) were unavailable for follow-up procedures.
