We want to hear your T2D story!
The American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) are issuing a national call for stories to identify people living with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease to become ambassadors for the Know Diabetes by Heart initiative – and we want to hear from you!
Know Diabetes by Heart is a landmark initiative that aims to raise awareness of the link between type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease and positively empower people living with type 2 diabetes to better manage their risks for heart attacks and strokes.
To support this, we’re looking for ambassadors to serve as volunteers and share their stories on a national platform and inspire others. If you’re living with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, you can share your story on online at knowdiabetesbyheart.org/voicescall.
