Make Some Noise About Diabetes - Join the THUNDERCLAP!
Thunderclap for #Diabetes Alert Day
 
Please join with the American Medical Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ad Council to help raise more awareness about prediabetes and the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP)!
 
Sign up for our Thunderclap using the prepackaged post via the link below to fill your social media feed at 12:00 p.m. ET (9am PT) on national #DiabetesAlertDay, Tuesday March 27, just five days before Medicare begins covering the National DPP on April 1. The post provides tips on how to find a National DPP program and more.
 
Special Note: Beyond this post, Thunderclap will not use your data or engage your social accounts in any way. So sign up today, and share with friends, family, and other supporters to help spread the word about what adults can do to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
