Join Connections IN Health and the Indiana State Department of Health in spreading awareness of National Diabetes Month and World Diabetes Day!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in Indiana (CDC, 2017). Hoosiers are increasingly feeling the effects of the disease with 2,096 deaths in 2017 (CDC, 2017). In 2018, 12.5% of Hoosiers were told they have diabetes, 1.2% having gestational and 9.4% having prediabetes (BRFSS, 2018). The World Diabetes Day (WDD) campaign goal is to boost awareness of the rising concern, promote early screening, and effective management within Indiana and beyond.
