More than 29 million Americans live with diabetes. For some it can be a struggle to afford the many medications and devices necessary to keep the disease under control. That has led to a lucrative market where prescriptions are bought and resold.

On a Friday morning, the Marion Franklin Intergenerational Center holds a health fair for local residents. Registered nurse Barbara Parker is there to screen for diabetes.  Using a Lancet, a small needle, she pricks the skin on the tip of the finger, then slips a thin glucose test strip into the handheld meter.
