Step out: Join the ADA walk in NOLA

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

Diabetes Management and Supplies will join the American Diabetes Association on Saturday November 3 for the New Orleans Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes.

ADA experts explain that Louisianans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know. It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.

DMS is one of a select number of messaging partners in the 2012 New Orleans Stop Diabetes Campaign. These groups and the Louisiana ADA are committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.

The Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes Walk will be held November 3 from 8 a.m. to Noon in Audubon Park. Visit the ADA site for more information and directions. Join us by registering today!
