Pre-Diabetes Awareness

In partnership with the Ad Council, the American Diabetes Association, and the American Medical Association, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Diabetes Translations recently launched the first-ever national public service ad campaign to raise awareness about pre-diabetes.

The campaign has a simple but strong message: No one is excused from pre-diabetes.

Humorous public service announcements (PSAs), in English and Spanish, encourage people to take a short online test at to learn their risk. People can also take the risk test in real time through interactive TV and radio PSAs, while learning more about the risk factors associated with the condition. The campaign website features lifestyle tips and links to the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), which connects visitors to a registry of CDC-organized programs across the county. In addition to all of this, the campaign features an SMS texting initiative which allows people to take the risk test via text message and receive ongoing support and lifestyle tips.

GDAHC encourages you to get involved with the campaign on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) by using #prediabetes. We also invite you to watch the PSAs below:
