Sound the Alert: Are You or a Loved One at Risk for Diabetes?

Dear Friends,

Ignoring diabetes is risky business. On American Diabetes Alert® Day – Tuesday, March 24, 2009 – the American Diabetes Association will be encouraging people to take the Diabetes Risk Test and find out if they, or their loved ones, are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

Get involved! Here are some easy ways to “sound the alert” on Facebook:

Join our Facebook event and text “Alert” to 32075. Don’t forget to share this event with your friends!

Post the Diabetes Risk Test widget on your wall, blog, or anywhere else so you can let your friends know that you care about their health. You can grab it at

Look for (and post) the “Are You a Risk Taker?” note. From bungee jumping to avoiding doctor visits – what kinds of risks are you willing to take?

Our sincerest thanks,

The American Diabetes Association
