Diabetes Alert Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Diabetes Alert Day

On March 26, 2013, the American Diabetes Association will be encouraging the public to take the Diabetes Risk Test, as well as to share the test with everyone they care about – friends, family members and colleagues. With each person that takes their test and knows their risk, the Association is that much closer to stopping diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association Alert Day®, which is held every fourth Tuesday in March, is a one-day “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.
“Diagnosis is the first step to learning to live with diabetes,” noted Barb Petersen, RN, CDE, Director of the CCMH Diabetes Center. “The CCMH Diabetes Center offers group and individual education and support to help you manage diabetes while living a healthy, active lifestyle.”
