This November, Home Care Delivered joins the American Diabetes Association in a national movement to raise awareness for a disease that affects 24 million Americans.
Richmond, VA (Vocus) November 24, 2009 -- In conjunction with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), Home Care Delivered recognizes National Diabetes Awareness Month, observed annually during the month of November. Nearly 24 million Americans have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. In addition, another 57 million people have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. If the upward trend doesn't change, one in three Americans will develop diabetes in his or her lifetime.
“It is important to shine a spotlight on this serious disease that can lead to potentially life-threatening complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and amputations,” said Carol Muratore, Chief Sales Officer and Executive Vice President of Marketing. “Diabetes is a serious epidemic in our country. Home Care Delivered’s goal is to help support proper diabetes management by providing patients with the testing supplies and support they need to follow their prescribed plans of care.”

“As part of our ongoing effort to support diabetes awareness, Home Care Delivered was a proud sponsor of the American Diabetes Association’s 2009 Step Out Walk To Fight Diabetes held in Richmond, Virginia this fall,” said Gordy Fox, Founder and CEO. “Our corporate walk team raised over $1,500 for the ADA to help fight the diabetes epidemic.”
