On October 27, 2022 The American Diabetes Association® (ADA) announced its recognition as a winner in the 2022 Sharecare Awards in the category of chronic diseases for The Big Step Up: Detection that encourages people to take the big step up for their health. Sharecare (Nasdaq: SHCR), in association with The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, New York Chapter (NY NATAS), the Sharecare Awards promote and reward excellence for the best productions and programming in health and well-being.
Each year for Diabetes Awareness Month, the ADA curates a national campaign geared towards motivating, educating, and empowering people living with diabetes. In partnership with 50 films and Rustler & Co., the ADA developed a video for the 2021 Diabetes Awareness Month that showcases real-life and impactful stories to highlight how diabetes affects millions of people. We are also excited to unveil this year’s campaign to empower those living with diabetes for the 2022 Diabetes Awareness Month that we produced in cooperation with the same team.
