Today kicks off American Diabetes Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about how diabetes affects the lives of millions of Americans. And, this year we are thrilled to launch our boldest, most extensive program ever!
We’re asking people to “Raise their Hand to Stop Diabetes” by making a personal pledge to take action against this deadly disease. Throughout the month, we’ll spotlight individuals and programs making valuable contributions in the fight to Stop Diabetes. From outspoken advocates and community leaders to medical professionals and celebrities who battle the disease every day, be sure to visit our Facebook page daily for their stories of triumph and perseverance.
We’re also proud and excited this year to have the support of Larry King, professional quarterback Jay Cutler and football analyst Herm Edwards. Each will share their experiences about living with diabetes– look for their personal stories and more on our YouTube channel.
There is so much that can be done in the fight to Stop Diabetes, and this month we urge you to take the small step of raising your hand to pledge action. Don’t forget to check back each day in November to learn more!
