DIABETES AWARENESS DAY AT NORTHGATE MARKETS
November 15th was Diabetes Awareness day at Northgate Markets.  The Viva La Salud team provided each store with diabetes education material.  The American Diabetic Association's diabetes risk assessment form helps people determine if they have a low or high risk of diabetes.  If your risk is low, continue working towards keeping it low.  If your risk is high, talk to your doctor about what you can do to prevent diabetes from setting in.  Healthy eating and exercise habits are key to preventing and/or managing diabetes.  The ADA's risk assessment form is available on the Viva La Salud page of the Northgate website,or you can click here to access the form.

Our stores participated in bringing attention to diabetes by decorating the store in red and gray, posting "Stop Diabetes" signs and wearing red and gray to work.  Some created diabetes information posters and displayed diabetic-friendly products like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.  Check out some of our pictures from Diabetes Awareness Day by clicking here.

Thank you to all the stores that participated!
