Hello Faculty and Staff
It’s that time of year again!!! On November 13th, the School of Nursing will be sponsoring its 2nd Annual Diabetes Awareness Walk. The event will start at 11:30 a.m. (walk will start at 12:00 p.m.), on the lawn of the Noble Hall Building. The 2-mile walk is open to both the university and Greensboro community. Our fund raising goal is $2,600.
Did you know there are 29.1 million people or 9.3% of the population have diabetes. Of this 29.1 million people, 21 million are diagnosed and 8.1 million are undiagnosed. (CDC, NDS Report 2014).
This is an awesome time to strengthen our Team Building Skills. I challenge you to either create your own team, join a team, or join the School of Nursing to raise funds for this important event. After you have started your team go to http://main.diabetes.org/goto/aggienurse and register your team. Tell family and friends how easy it is to make a contribution, and how this small token will help them give back to their community. Family, friends, colleagues can make contributions directly by clicking on the link http://main.diabetes.org/goto/aggienurse .
