Help a loved one, help a coworker, help yourself, take DIABETES to HEART!

The Diabetes Heart Connection effort is welcoming supporters to help raise awareness of the increasing co-occurrence of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, its complications, and the need for greater prevention efforts and treatment solutions. We all can find an easy way to answer the call to action and help raise awareness while possibly saving a life! Please see below for a link to our full advocacy toolkit and help us MAKE THE DIABETES HEART CONNECTION!

We are working to:

  • Build momentum for the national health observance day - November 9th;

  • Better educate people at risk, providers, caregivers, policymakers and all other stakeholders, on the significant impact of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, two of the most prevalent and costly chronic conditions, and;

  • Encourage the co-treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in order to reduce the overall burden of illness.

We urge you to pledge your support, free of charge, as we rally for this important issue, and also ask that you follow DHC on Facebook and Twitter to help us broaden our message throughout the health care community.
