American Diabetes Alert Day® is March 28

American Diabetes Association's Diabetes Alert Day®, which is a day to sound the alarm about the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in American adults by asking America to take the American Diabetes Association Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test, is March 28, 2017.

Healthcare organizations across the country are hosting Diabetes Alert Day® events to raise awareness about this disease. It's not too late for your organization/agency to host a similar event or to download and share Diabetes Alert Day® materials with your patients.

In support of this important day, HHQI would like to highlight some of our diabetes and prediabetes care and prevention resources:

Prediabetes and Signs & Symptoms of Diabetes is a 10-min educational multimedia module for patients that provides information on diagnoses, risk factors, and prevention.
Intervening Early: Building an Identification & Referral System for Patients at Risk for Diabetes in Primary Care Centers (9/11/13 UP Network webinar)
Do I Have Prediabetes is a PSA campaign (from ADA, AMA & CDC)  that aims to raise awareness of prediabetes, a serious health condition that affects 86 million Americans (more than 1 in 3 adults) and often leads to type 2 diabetes.
