Сообщение Grayman »

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Diabetes Association is excited to announce its new relationship with Alpha Gamma Delta, an international women's fraternity founded in 1904, in order to help educate and raise awareness of diabetes through their collegiate and alumnae membership.

"Education is critical for the prevention of type 2 diabetes and avoiding the complications that can result from poor management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and we are thrilled to have Alpha Gamma Delta on board to help us further our mission in stopping this deadly disease," said Suzanne C. Berry, MBA, CAE, Interim Chief Executive Officer, American Diabetes Association. "By providing members with opportunities for community service related to diabetes awareness and education, this alliance will help us achieve these goals by expanding our reach and impact."

To help build awareness, Alpha Gamma Delta members will join in community service efforts by volunteering with local Association offices and will work to educate and raise awareness of diabetes on college campuses and in their communities via online and offline publications.

"Alpha Gamma Delta is proud and delighted to join with the American Diabetes Association in a new relationship to leverage our combined resources to make a greater impact in our communities through education and service," said Rie Hoehner, International President, Alpha Gamma Delta Fraternity. "By contributing to our world's work in this important area, our sisterhood will make a significant impact in raising awareness about diabetes in the many lives affected by this disease every day."

Alpha Gamma Delta's mission promotes academic excellence, philanthropic giving, community service, ongoing leadership and personal development, and a spirit of loving sisterhood. Currently, there are 118 active collegiate chapters and more than 250 alumnae clubs. For more information about Alpha Gamma Delta, visit alphagammadelta.org.
