American Diabetes Association raises awareness as part of annual Alert Day® on March 24
BUFFALO, NY–The American Diabetes Association (ADA) today announced its annual Alert Day® and encouraged Western New Yorkers to take a free diabetes risk test, to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. In addition, the Peace Bridge was illuminated in the color red to support Alert Day® and further raise awareness about the disease.
“Recent estimates project that as many as one in three adults will have diabetes in 2050,” said Alexandra Murello, director of the Buffalo ADA. “Early diagnosis is key to successful treatment and preventing complications such as heart disease, blindness, kidney disease and stroke.”
