Diabetes Alert Day

American Diabetes Association Alert Day®, observed annually on the fourth Tuesday in March, is a one-day wake-up call to inform the American public about the seriousness of diabetes, particularly when diabetes is left undiagnosed or untreated. This year Diabetes Alert Day will be observed on March 25, 2014.

In support of Diabetes Alert Day, NDEP and its partners encourage you to take the Diabetes Risk Test and take steps to help prevent or delay the onset of the disease.

Take the Diabetes Risk Test to learn your risk for type 2 diabetes.
