Dribble to Stop Diabetes
Dribble to Stop Diabetes is a national multimedia campaign developed by the National Basketball Association (NBA), the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) and the NBA Development League, in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association and Sanofi US to encourage basketball fans to live an active, healthy lifestyle and raise awareness about diabetes prevention, management and the potentially serious health complications that can be associated with the disease.
Estimates show that nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes, and every 17 seconds - about the time it takes for a timeout in a basketball game - someone in the United States is diagnosed with the disease. On top of that, an estimated seven million people remain undiagnosed with type 2 diabetes which is why driving awareness through the Dribble to Stop Diabetes program is so essential.
It's important to know your risk for diabetes and, if you are at risk, talk to your doctor and get tested. Visit www.dribbletostopdiabetes.com for more information and to take the risk assessment.
