Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Joslin Diabetes Center isn’t the only organization that’s spreading the word on National Nutrition Month: Insulin manufacturer Novo Nordisk has partnered with three food banks around the nation to emphasize the importance of a healthful diet with an interactive quiz.

The five-question quiz tests a person’s knowledge of the role of nutrition in diabetes prevention and management and serves as a way to raise awareness about diabetes. For each quiz completed, Novo Nordisk will make a donation to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, and Northwest Harvest in Seattle.

To try your hand at the quiz, and to share it with friends and family, visit www.doyouknowdiabetes.com.
