There are 35 million Americans who are 65 years or older. One in three seniors has diabetes; nearly 50% don't know it. Another 40% have pre-diabetes. All are at risk for serious health problems.
To help address this growing figure, the Medicare Diabetes Screening Project: A National Drive to Find the Undiagnosed was created. Its goal - increase awareness of the benefits for diabetes screening that Medicare offers to seniors ages 65 and older.
Our congregations are as caring communities an obvious source of information for people about this problem and this project.
