NEW YORK — Sweet'N Low and Olympic athlete Dominique Dawes have joined forces to address the growing diabetes epidemic in honor of National Diabetes Month.
As part of the partnership, the sugar packet brand and Dawes will host free diabetes screenings in New York and Washington, D.C., during the month of November. The screenings will include a glucose test and questionnaire to identify symptoms and recognized risk factors, as well as Dawes discussing the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Information on the dates and locations of the free diabetes screening clinics can be found on SweetnLow.com.
"I am very excited to be joining forces with my favorite sugar substitute, Sweet'N Low, encouraging people to get screened and build awareness around such an important cause," Dawes said. "With a history of diabetes in my family, I am aware of the severe effects of the disease and am very pleased to assist in educating Americans about the importance of early detection and appropriate treatment."
