Type 2 Diabetes Prevention

Type 2 Diabetes Prevention

More than one in three American adults have prediabetes and are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a serious health condition that can lead to heart attack and stroke.

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer kills 426 people every day—approximately 18 deaths each hour, or 1 death every 3.5 minutes. The five-year survival rate for lung cancer is 17.7%, among the lowest for all types of cancers. Early detection saves lives—survival rates are five times higher when lung cancer is detected early, but most cases are not diagnosed until later stages. If only half of the high-risk population were screened, more than 15,000 lives could be saved.  

Suicide Prevention

Suicide Prevention

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young adults. Seize the Awkward aims to encourage and empower young adults to reach out to a friend who may be struggling with their mental health. By leveraging moments of vulnerability in their friendships, they can create a safe space for their friends to open up about mental health.

Autism Awareness

Autism Awareness

Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disorder in the United States. Despite high prevalence, research shows that many parents of young children have very little knowledge about autism and are not seeking help soon enough. This campaign seeks to educate parents about the growing rate of autism in this country and to ultimately increase the level of early detection.

High Blood Pressure Control

High Blood Pressure Control

While most people know their blood pressure numbers, many don’t follow their HBP plan because they feel fine and don’t notice any symptoms. Their numbers are not tangible or urgent. The High Blood Pressure Control campaign encourages people to talk with their doctor to create or evolve a treatment plan and visit LowerYourHBP.org to learn more about high blood pressure.
