AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION ALERT DAY
National American Diabetes Association Alert Day is observed annually on the fourth Tuesday in March. This day is a one-day “wake-up call” to inform the American public about the seriousness of diabetes and encourages all to take the diabetes risk test and learn about your family’s history of diabetes.
