Outreach and Promotions

In March, Maureen focused her program on Diabetes Alert Day.

In supporting NDEP, Maureen promoted the Diabetes Risk Test, NDEP website, and NDEP Facebook page. NDEP’s public service announcements (PSAs) were also displayed on the radio set for online viewers to see. In addition to promoting NDEP resources, Maureen broadcasted an audio clip featuring an interview with NDEP Chair, Dr. John Buse, speaking about Diabetes Alert Day and the importance of knowing your risk for type 2 diabetes.
