National Prediabetes Awareness Campaign
In 2016, CDC partnered with the American Diabetes Association, American Medical Association, and Ad Council to launch the first national prediabetes awareness campaign. The campaign’s humorous public service announcements (PSAs) encourage millions of people to find out their risk by taking a 1-minute test at DoIHavePrediabetes.orgexternal icon. The campaign website also links to sites nationwide that deliver the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program.
As of spring 2020:
- More than 3.4 million people visited the site and completed a prediabetes risk test.
- More than 124,000 went on to visit the National DPP website to find a lifestyle change program.
This award-winning campaign—one of the Ad Council’s most successful ever—has been extended. Watch for new PSAs soon!
