NIDDK releases new awareness and prevention series for community health events
Date:3/3/2008

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) today announced the release of new health information to raise awareness about diabetes, digestive diseases, and kidney and urologic diseases among people not yet diagnosed with these illnesses. The NIDDK developed the Awareness and Prevention Series for community health fairs, workplace health forums, family reunions, and other similar events. NIDDK is one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Awareness and Prevention Series publications are each two-page fact sheets one side in English and the other in Spanish on a wide range of health topics, including bladder control, celiac disease, foodborne illness, irritable bowel syndrome, pre-diabetes, preventing diabetes complications, urinary tract infections, and many others. Each fact sheet gives readers a snapshot of an illness, highlighting risk factors, symptoms, prevention tips, and where to go for more information.

"The series is designed to encourage readers to ask 'Could this be me or someone I care for"'" said Kathy Kranzfelder, director of the NIDDK Information Clearinghouses, which disseminate information about diabetes, digestive diseases, and kidney and urologic diseases to patients, health care professionals, and the general public. "Raising awareness of these illnesses may help people take steps to prevent them or see a doctor if they have symptoms."
