A1C is an important tool to reduce the risk of deadly complications like heart attack and stroke
The Ad Council, the nation's leading producer of public service advertisements (PSAs), the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF), with the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), are launching the first ever national public education campaign geared to raise awareness of A1C, a key indicator of diabetes management. The new campaign was unveiled today by the Ad Council, ADA and JDRF.
The unprecedented collaboration will educate Americans with diabetes on the critical importance of knowing their A1C. A1C is a test that measures a patient's blood glucose level over the previous three months that might also help predict serious health complications like heart attack and stroke. People with diabetes must know their A1C level to manage diabetes, and the goal for most people with diabetes is to maintain a consistent A1C score of less than 7 percent. Unfortunately, many people do not know their A1C level. For example, a New York City Department of Health report found that in 2003 eighty-nine percent of patients with diabetes in New York City did not know their A1C level. National figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest that 63 percent of all diabetes patients have A1C levels above 7 percent.
Department of Justice Unveils Ads at Annual Project Safe Neighborhoods Conference
The U.S. Department of Justice, in partnership with the Ad Council, announced today the launch of a new series of public service advertisements (PSAs) aimed at reducing gun crime in America. The PSAs are an extension of the Department of Justice's Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative. First launched in 2003, the campaign seeks to reduce violent crime by drawing attention to the negative effects gun crime has on the families of offenders.
The ads will be unveiled this afternoon at the Annual Project Safe Neighborhoods Conference in Atlanta.
Developed by the U.S. Department of Justice, Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is a nationwide commitment designed to reduce gun crime in America. As in previous phases of the campaign, the new television, radio and outdoor PSAs seek to engage potential offenders by portraying the negative consequences gun crime has not only for those who commit it, but also for their families. The ads are available in both English and Spanish and have been localized for 60 markets nationwide.
