American Diabetes Association Alert Day®

Take It. Share It.

American Diabetes Association Alert Day®, which is held every fourth Tuesday in March, is a one-day, “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

The new Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risks for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Preventative tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

Take the Diabetes Risk Test

For every Diabetes Risk Test taken, Boar’s Head® - manufacturer of premium delicatessen products - will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association starting March 27 through April 27, 2012, up to $50,000.

We are encouraging Americans to “Take it. Share it.” take the Diabetes Risk Test and share it with everyone you know. With each person that takes the test and knows their risk, the Association is that much closer to stopping diabetes.
