March 24 was Diabetes Alert Day this year. To mark the ocassion, NCLR joined the American Medical Association, the YMCA, the National Council on Aging, and the National Association of City and County Health Officials for a twitter chat on what people can do to fight against diabetes.
Currently, diabetes affects nearly 29 million people. Another 86 million have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes, but only about 9 million are aware of it. You may not be at risk, but what about the people you love?
