America’s Diabetes Challenge: Get to Your Goals

Join us when award-winning actress S. Epatha Merkerson comes to Concord Church to share her story of living with type 2 diabetes. Merkerson has partnered with Merck on America’s Diabetes Challenge: Get to Your Goals program and is encouraging African Americans with type 2 diabetes to know their A1C—their average blood sugar level over the past 2 to 3 months—and talk to their doctors about setting and attaining their own A1C goal.

Set and Attain Your A1C Goal

The American Diabetes Association’s guidelines recommend many people with diabetes have an A1C of less than 7 percent to help reduce the risk of complications. For certain individuals, a higher or lower A1C may be more appropriate, which is why it is important for people with diabetes to speak with their doctors to find out what A1C goal is right for them. Nearly half of people with diabetes are not at an A1C of less than 7 percent.
