Walking Towards a Goal: Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes
The MedStar Diabetes Institute was one of many groups that attended the Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes on the Mall in Washington, DC, in September.
Every 21 seconds, someone is told that they have diabetes. The walk, hosted by the American Diabetes Association, funds critical research, advances advocacy and helps to grow programs like Diabetes Camp and the Living With Type 2 Program. The team raised $9,000 and counting for the cause.
The team included associates from the MedStar Diabetes Institute, MedStar Health Research Institute, patients at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and members of the local American Diabetes Association Chapter. Thank you to all who donated to support the team.
