American Diabetes Alert Day a Huge Success!

We had 238 total paper risk test takers. The street team was huge in making that happen.

Thank you to everyone who took the risk test on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 – American Diabetes Association’s Diabetes Alert Day. Nationally, there were nearly 58,000 who took the risk test online. The American Diabetes Association’s North Texas office distributed hundreds of Diabetes Risk Tests to Mavericks fans in recognition of Diabetes Alert Day.  Fans visited the CheckUp America booth on the concourse to take the Risk Test, receive free diabetes information, and get their blood pressure screened.  One lucky fan also received a signed Mavericks item.  Support for the booth was provided by Walgreens and Janssen Pharmaceuticals.

Check Out our new public service announcement written produced and directed in English and Spanish by AMS Pictures to illustrate the shocking number of Texans who succumb to diabetes every year.
