Step Out with the American Diabetes Association

According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes is a disease that affects more than 23.6 million Americans (roughly 7.2% of the population). It’s a disease that’s not fully understood, although proper nutrition, insulin management and foot care go a long way to ensure that children and adults living with the disease can live a happy, healthy life.

Diabetes awareness programs such as the American Diabetes Association’s “Step Out” program foster a better understanding of the disease by bringing people together to fight for a cure. With over 150 “Step Out” programs across the United States, there’s a way for each of us to help out – whether by participating in an organized event or by donating money to the association.

For more information about diabetes, the American Diabetes Association and the “Step Out” program, visit www.diabetes.org or http://stepout.diabetes.org.
