An estimated 86 million Americans have prediabetes, and 90 percent of them don't know they have it. Prediabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes and its many serious complications. It's crucial for people to know their risk because prediabetes can be reversed with healthy food choices, weight loss, exercise, other lifestyle changes and medication.
Held the last Tuesday of March each year, American Diabetes Association Alert Day® encourages everyone to take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test and participate in workplace-friendly activities that will teach them about reversing the risk for diabetes.
We hope you'll participate in the next American Diabetes Association Alert Day on March 28, 2017. To get started, download the free, easy-to-use e-toolkit with ideas and resources to encourage employees to take the risk test and share it with family, friends and colleagues. The participant toolkit can be found here.
The e-toolkit includes:
· Steps for Success and Activation Ideas
· Sample Email Templates and Communications
· Social Media Messages and Images
· Sample e-Newsletter and Blog Content
· Customizable Posters
· Educational resources
· Printable handouts and Type 2 Diabetes Risk Tests
