American Diabetes Association Alert Day®

diabetes alert dayTomorrow is American Diabetes Association Alert Day®! Help to spread awareness for diabetes prevention!

American Diabetes Association Alert Day® 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.

Held on the fourth Tuesday of every March, the next Alert Day will take place on Tuesday, March 25, 2014.

The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Preventive tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

For every test taken, Boar’s Head Brand® – a leading provider of premium delicatessen products – will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association starting March 25 through April 25, 2014, up to $50,000.

American Diabetes Association Alert Day is also nationally supported by Walgreens.

Although Alert Day is a one-day event, the Diabetes Risk Test is available year-round.
