This past Tuesday, March 24, was American Diabetes Alert Day. This one-day "wake-up call" for the American public has taken place on the fourth Tuesday in March for the last 21 years. Sponsored by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the day aims to raise awareness of the seriousness of diabetes and urge people to find out if they or their loved ones are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Several organizations and companies got involved this year, offering up free tools, advice, and deals that are useful well beyond Diabetes Alert Day. Here are some links:

Even though American Diabetes Alert Day has passed, it’s not too late to take advantage of these resources.
