Mayor Reed Urges Older Adults in Atlanta to Get Screened for Diabetes
Date:3/23/2010

ATLANTA, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Mayor Kasim Reed today urged the citizens of Atlanta, especially those ages 65 and older, to learn more about diabetes and its risk factors and get screened for this very serious disease.  The Mayor joined with other city and community leaders and more than 100 seniors at Big Bethel Village to help launch the Medicare Diabetes Screening Project on American Diabetes Association Alert Day.

"Diabetes strikes hard here in Atlanta, affecting far too many of us, especially people of color and our older adults," said Mayor Reed.  "But did you know there's a lot of good news?  Diabetes can often be prevented, or if you find out you have diabetes and take care of yourself, you can greatly improve your chances of living a long and healthy life.  But first you have to get tested and see where you stand."

Getting tested for diabetes by taking advantage of Medicare's free diabetes screening benefits is the central message of the Medicare Diabetes Screening Project (MDSP).  Co-chaired by the American Diabetes Association, the Healthcare Leadership Council, and Novo Nordisk, the MDSP is now launching in Atlanta after successfully working since 2007 in Columbus, Savannah, and other cities in Georgia.
