National Diabetes Awareness

Women In Government Foundation Logo
Dear PSA Director,

More than 1 in every 3 adults is at risk for developing diabetes, an epidemic that costs the U.S. healthcare system $245 billion each year.

Women In Government, a national, non-profit, non-partisan organization of women state legislators, is asking for your support to raise awareness about the importance early intervention to help control blood sugar levels and maintain health in the long term.

Consistently high blood levels may not present symptoms until it's too late. Diabetes significantly increases the risk of complications including heart disease, kidney damage and eye damage; however, proper management can help to mitigate these risks.

Women In Government hosted its 22nd Annual State Directors Conference in Tampa, Florida and asked women state legislators from across the region to record public service announcements to raise diabetes awareness.

Women In Government has provided leadership opportunities, networking, expert forums, and educational resources for over 25 years on policy issues such as healthcare, education, energy, the environment, transportation, and more. To learn more, visit www.womeningovernment.org

Please support us in our continued efforts by airing this PSA. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
