National American Diabetes Association Alert Day
"Alert Day is a "wake-up call" asking Americans to take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Companies, organizations and communities can play an important role by encouraging their employees and members to take the Diabetes Risk Test, share it with family and friends and participate in workplace-friendly activities that demonstrate ways to lower their risk for diabetes".
