Diabetes Can Break Your Heart

Article Type: 

On November 14, 2019, AstraZeneca announced the launch of Diabetes Can Break Your Heart, a national movement with a goal to change the trajectory of heart failure (HF) in type 2 diabetes (T2D).

The initiative is designed to raise awareness, create community action and spark dialogue between those with T2D and their healthcare providers to help reduce the risk of HF—one of the earliest and most frequent cardiac complications for people living with T2D, often before heart attack or stroke, and an urgent public health issue.

Diabetes Can Break Your Heart will travel to several cities across America in 2020 to educate and activate communities around the inherent link between T2D and HF. The tour will bring together national and local advocacy organizations, key community leaders and the public with the common goal of empowering the diabetes community to demand more for
their future.
