88 Million Americans Have Prediabetes: #88for88

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and this year the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) is teaming up with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors by spreading the word about the 88 million Americans living with prediabetes. It’s estimated that over 2.4 million Floridians have diabetes and over 5.8 million have prediabetes. The #88for88 challenge aims to bring awareness to this critical health issue by inviting everyone to post 88-character messages on Facebook and Twitter during November.
