Help a loved one, help yourself, take DIABETES to HEART!
Pledge Your Support TODAY
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 are working to:
- Build momentum for a 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.
By signing the pledge your organization agrees to the importance national and state efforts and urges the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to recognize November 9th as NATIONAL DIABETES HEART CONNECTION DAY.
