Next November, help thousands in your community increase their diabetes awareness. Use American Diabetes Month to truly enable them to discover this potentially life-changing condition and seek appropriate treatment.
Diabetes Awareness – The Numbers
According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes is the 7th leading cause of disability and death in the USA. Diabetes affects over 30 million adults today. Of those people, 7.2 million are undiagnosed. Therefore, in your market, there are potentially thousands of parents, caregivers, and workers walking around completely unaware of their condition. Plus, the longer it goes untreated, the more it impacts personal health and financial well-being. Clearly, diabetes awareness continues to be an issue in this country.
Many health systems we work with partner with local community groups, radio stations, etc. as well as use online and real-world advertising to drive adults to online diabetes awareness resources. In other words, anything that makes a consumer take pause and seriously consider how diabetes could affect them makes a great call to action.
For example, our Diabetes Risk HRA asks consumers a few simple questions to determine their risk of developing diabetes within 8 years. Next, those falling into High-Risk categories are often forwarded to the system’s Diabetes Education program for follow-up and possible appointment setting. Other effective diabetes awareness wake-up calls include videos and personal testimonials of impacted patients.
Hence, this type of diabetes awareness program can be invaluable to achieving broad population health goals. Also, it can help strengthen your brand. If you’d like to see a demo or learn about pricing options, please reach out to us today.
