Help NDEP promote National Diabetes Awareness Month 2010
Posted Aug 12 2010 5:00pm
The NDEP will mark National Diabetes Awareness Month 2010 by promoting awareness and prevention messages that emphasize having a family history of diabetes as a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. We will also promote NDEP messages for women with a history of gestational diabetes and children of these pregnancies as they relate to family history and increased risk.
The NDEP National Diabetes Awareness Month 2010 outreach campaign uses real people telling their personal stories about diabetes prevention and managing increased risk due to family history of type 2 diabetes and/or gestational diabetes. These materials build on NDEP’s popular approach for the Managing Diabetes 2009 campaign , which featured testimonials from real people living with diabetes.
Join the effort by using NDEP messages, tools and resources to promote National Diabetes Awareness Month activities in your area.
