Diabetes Alert Day

March 22, 2011 – In honor of American Diabetes Association Alert Day, students from the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy set up a booth outside the Self Regional Healthcare Clinic, located on the campus of the Pharmacy School, to provide incoming patients with information about type 2 diabetes. Students participated in Diabetes Alert Day as part of the Association’s “Join the Million Challenge.” The event, which runs through April 22, encourages at least one million people to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes by answering simple questions about weight, age, family history, and other potential risks for pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.
