Diabetes Alert Day

Today, March 27, is Diabetes Alert Day.  The American Diabetes Association’s one-day effort to educate the American public on the risk factors for developing Type 2 Diabetes.

It’s a wake-up call, a call for people to take a few minutes to complete the ADA’s Diabetes Risk Test to determine their risk of developing the disease.

This year, Boar’s Head® will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association for every Diabetes Risk Test taken, starting March 27 through April 27, 2012, up to $50,000.

Approximately 18 million Americans are living with a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes.  And it’s estimated that at least 7 million Americans are living with the disease and don’t yet know it.

So please, take the test, share it with friends and family members, and should your results indicate you are at risk, talk to your doctor.

Wake up, America.  The time to take action against Type 2 diabetes is now!
