Steps to Reducing Diabetes

How will you stop diabetes? The future is in your hands. November is American Diabetes Month.

Last November, the American Diabetes Association launched the Stop Diabetes movement, with the audacious goal of having 1 million people join in the first year. So far, more than 814,000 people around the country have raised their hand and pledged to join the fight.

A study by the Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, published in the Oct. 1, 2003 American Journal of Epidemiology discovered that walking for 30 minutes a day cut diabetes risks for overweight as well as non-overweight men and women.

For Diabetes Awareness Month, you can download WalkingSpree’s Diabetes Awareness calendar with walking tips for posting in your workplace or on your fridge as a reminder of the importance of every step you take.
