Thank You!

The American Diabetes Association of Alabama would like thank everyone who came out and participated in our Health & Wellness Event at Riverchase Galleria on Tuesday March 23. We especially would like to thank HealthSpring for sponsoring the event and helping us raise awareness about the severity of diabetes and the impact it is having on our nation.

Our event would not have been a success without the generosity of the vendors too. Thanks for helping raise awareness and taking the time out of your day to take part in our event. By taking part in Alert Day you helped lay the foundation for individuals to live a better life through eating correctly and exercising, while educating them on how they can prevent diabetes.
