Puppies, Prevention and Prediabetes

What do puppies, hedgehogs, and baby goats have in common (besides being super cute)?  They’re helping people find out their risk for prediabetes, thanks to the National Prediabetes Awareness Campaign’s lighthearted new public service announcements (PSAs).
These new videos allow viewers to learn where they stand by taking a one-minute prediabetes risk test while also watching fun animal videos.
