American Diabetes Wholesale is donating $5,000.00 in diabetes testing supplies in support of the ‘National Diabetes Mall Testing Tour’ which starts next month.
The tour is designed to take diabetes testing to the public in a manner that has never been done before and will feature free diabetes screening, free blood pressure monitoring, and cooking demonstrations. Developed by Celebrity Chef and Best-Selling author Charles Mattocks, the tour is scheduled to visit major metropolitan cities such as Atlanta, Dallas, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Orlando, and Miami.
“It was an easy decision for American Diabetes Wholesale to donate supplies to the National Diabetes Mall Testing Tour. Our team is proud to support Charles’ endeavor as he works hard to educate, help, and inspire thousands of people with diabetes throughout his tour”, says Chris Maguire, Vice President and co-founder of American Diabetes Wholesale.
Charles Mattocks was diagnosed with diabetes in 2010. Already a popular celebrity chef known for creating recipes that are healthy and affordable, Mattocks took his dedication to healthy eating to a new level upon being diagnosed with diabetes. His push to educate and show people how they can take better care of their health, while on a budget, is the foundation for what this bus tour is all about.
Mattocks states, “In my fight to save my own life and the life of others with diabetes, we look for people and companies that will stand and step up and arm us with the tools we need to reach the millions of people that are looking for help and hope. American Diabetes Wholesale is one of those companies that have gone above and beyond to allow me to keep believing that we can offer that hope, education, and inspiration to those in need. This gracious donation and continuous support of American Diabetes Wholesale will not only make screening possible for thousands who didn’t know they have diabetes but we hope to encourage those with diabetes to stay the course”.
American Diabetes Wholesale has partnered with Charles Mattocks in the past, from the launch of his Best-Selling cookbook to his Sugar-Free and diabetes friendly gourmet chocolate bars. Charles is also part of the ADW’s Destination Diabetes advisor board – an educational component of their website featuring tips and advice from diabetes and nutrition experts, diabetic recipes and more.
