With the impact of Superstorm Sandy still resonating, and the 2013 hurricane and tornado seasons looming, now is a good time to remind people of the importance of emergency preparedness. For people with diabetes or other medical issues, advanced planning could save their lives.
Lilly Diabetes is partnering with the American College of Endocrinology (ACE) to emphasize emergency planning for people with diabetes at the National Hurricane Conference this week. A recent press release explains how Lilly Diabetes and ACE joined forces to create the “My Diabetes Emergency Plan” program after seeing the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
