American Diabetes Association® Alert Day® is a one-day "wake-up call" asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Held on the fourth Tuesday of every March, this year’s Alert Day will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2013.

The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Preventative tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

Although Alert Day is a one-day event, the Diabetes Risk Test is available year-round.

We are excited to announce that for every Diabetes Risk Test taken, Boar's Head® - a leading provider of premium delicatessen products - will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association starting March 26 through April 9, 2013, up to $50,000.
