Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes.

In fact, an estimated 7 million Americans have diabetes and don’t even know it.

Hello, I’m Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. November is recognized as American Diabetes Month, an annual reminder to have your blood glucose levels checked for signs of diabetes. 

Over 29 million Americans suffer the effects of diabetes. It is a leading cause of kidney failure, blindness and amputations and is also a major cause of heart disease and stroke.

The good news is that you can prevent or delay the onset of diabetes by simply eating healthy and exercising at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

Physical activity can help you control your weight, blood glucose and blood pressure, and regulate your cholesterol levels.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health offers diabetes screenings at no charge.   To schedule an appointment, please call 645-5933. That number again is 645-5933.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health, working for healthy people in healthy communities.
