Today we wanted to share something that Peter Pancreas feels very strongly about! Thanks to the American Diabetes Association for this very helpful information:
American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. This year, during the Association’s 75th anniversary, Alert Day kicks off today (March 24th) and continues through Tuesday, April 21st. The 2015 theme is: Take it. Share It. Step Out.
You can be part of the movement to Stop Diabetes®! Take the free Diabetes Risk Test and receive preventive tips, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider, eating more healthfully and getting active, or you can join or start a Step Out team. Walgreens is supporting the American Diabetes Association Alert Day efforts so you can also ask your local Walgreens pharmacist for a copy of the Diabetes Risk Test.
So make sure and take the Diabetes Risk Test. Share it with everyone you know. And when you’re ready to get more active, join the Association and Step Out!
The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight to Stop Diabetes® and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Founded in 1940, their mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
