Celebrity Chef Sam Talbot Gets on Board for Diabetes Testing

MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeScan, Inc., the maker of OneTouch® Brand Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems, has teamed up with Rite Aid to launch the Rite Track Diabetes Tour. Beginning on November 1, the start of American Diabetes Month, a mobile bus will travel to various Rite Aid pharmacies in eight cities in the Northeast to provide complimentary on-site blood glucose and A1c testing, educational materials and free product samples and offers for people with diabetes, or those at risk.  There are nearly 26 million Americans who have diabetes, seven million of whom remain undiagnosed.

To kick off the Rite Track Diabetes Tour, celebrity chef Sam Talbot (1), who has type 1 diabetes, will be at the first stop, on November 1, at the Rite Aid pharmacy at 301 West 50th St. in New York City, from 11a.m. – 3 p.m.  Talbot, executive chef at New York's Imperial No. Nine and Montauk's Surf Lodge, recently joined with the makers of OneTouch® Brand Meters to help people learn to manage their diabetes while living life without limits.

At the New York event, Talbot will discuss his own diabetes story and give away signed copies of his newly published cookbook, The Sweet Life:  Diabetes Without Boundaries (Rodale, October 25, 2011).

In New York and in each city along the Rite Track Diabetes Tour, attendees can step into the bus to meet one-on-one with a registered nurse for complimentary blood glucose and A1c testing.  Individuals can discuss their results with a Rite Aid pharmacist and learn more about diabetes and how to help manage the condition.

"We're pleased to be working with the makers of OneTouch® Products to bring the Rite Track Diabetes Tour directly to the people in the communities we serve," said Robert Thompson, Rite Aid Executive Vice President of Pharmacy.  "As one of the most accessible healthcare professionals, we want people living with diabetes to know their Rite Aid pharmacist can help them successfully manage and live well with diabetes."

Current stops for the Rite Track Diabetes Tour include New York, Boston, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Washington, D.C., and Norfolk.  A complete schedule of locations and dates is attached and also available at
