Team Tackle is an initiative that brings current and former professional football players together with the American Diabetes Association to draw attention to diabetes, one of our country's leading chronic health issues.
Today, 1 in 11 Americans is living with diabetes. Tens of millions more are at risk, 90% of which don’t even know it. In communities across the country, diabetes needs our attention now. The American Diabetes Association is the only organization working on behalf of all people with diabetes and those who are at risk.
As a 2017 strategic partner of the National Football League Players Association, we are uniting current and former professional football players to represent Team Tackle and work with the Association to raise awareness of diabetes and prediabetes; champion additional research, fair treatment and total wellness for all people living with diabetes; and provide hope for the millions of individuals and families who are managing diabetes or are at risk.
Team Tackle illustrates that no matter what team you normally cheer for on Sundays, we are all together for the win when it comes to tackling diabetes.
Diabetes is a game-changer. Team Tackle is asking the country to take 60 seconds to learn your risk for diabetes and prediabetes.
