Vision Racing Wellness Tour Offers Free Diabetes Screenings and Information at IndyCar Series Races

INDIANAPOLIS, May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Vision Racing Wellness Tour makes its first pit stop on May 8, also known as Fast Friday, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In its second year, the Wellness Tour, a collaboration between Indianapolis-based companies Lilly and Vision Racing, will provide racing fans with free diabetes screenings with A1c testing and risk factor assessment, along with cholesterol and blood pressure testing. During the 2009 season, the Tour will travel to select IndyCar Series races, including the Indianapolis 500, with this free off-the-track health offering.

While receiving a diabetes check-up may not be considered a typical racetrack activity, race fans may be surprised to learn just how common diabetes is and about the seriousness of its resulting complications. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes affects nearly 24 million Americans nationwide; nearly one-fourth, or approximately 6 million of those affected are unaware that they have the disease.(1) Furthermore, diabetes is associated with an increased risk for a number of serious and potentially life-threatening complications, such as blindness, kidney failure and leg amputations, among others.(2) The Vision Racing Wellness Tour aims to provide people with the education and resources they need to be aware of diabetes and other important health issues.

"Through our partnership with Vision Racing, we have a great opportunity to bring a truly unique health offering to the track," said Rob Brown, vice president and chief marketing officer, Lilly USA. "In select cities, IndyCar race fans will have access to a certified diabetes educator in addition to the diabetes screenings at the Wellness Tour. Through these offerings, Lilly hopes to help people stay on track with their health."
