Observing Diabetes Alert Day



“Trying to manage diabetes is hard because if you don’t, there are consequences you’ll have to deal with later in life.”
-    Bryan Adams, popular Canadian singer

It’s difficult to find a person who doesn’t have a family member or friend suffering from diabetes. You are probably aware of the symptoms associated with the condition. Things can get nerve-wracking for the sufferer. Here is a fact – diabetes is here to stay. And it’s important people are introduced to the risks associated with the disease sooner than later.
Diabetes is a condition that needs more attention than it is receiving. Did you know that a whopping 29.1 million Americans had diabetes in 2012? Or that more than 25% of senior citizens are afflicted from the disease? There is close to 2 million new diagnoses every year! Here is a shocker – thousands of Americans are unaware they have the condition.

It’s time to meet the disease head-on before it’s too late.

Diabetes Alert Day is an event held every year in America to spread awareness against diabetes. It is organized by the American Diabetes Association whose primary goal is to help sufferers lead better and normal lives. Diabetes Alert Day is usually observed on the fourth Tuesday of every March. This year, it falls on March 24.

Several hospitals across the USA are gearing up to observe Diabetes Alert Day. They will offer free health check-ups to screen for blood sugar, cholesterol and Body Mass Index (BMI) levels. The goal is to educate citizens on the importance of having check-ups done to identify the condition at the earliest stage.
Apart from hospitals and clinics, several businesses get associated with Diabetes Alert Day. You could organize a camp for employees in the office. Or host an awareness campaign at the local church or school. Imprint your logo with a diabetes awareness message on promotional cups, bracelets, t-shirts or bags to get the message across.

The best way to gain quality goodwill!


Nothing means more to a business than the goodwill and trust of the local community. Associating your brand with diabetes awareness will provide your brand with genuine visibility that will last years.
