The American Diabetes Association would like to recognize Janssen Pharmaceuticals as this month's featured sponsor in the fight to Stop Diabetes®. Janssen is a strong supporter of our diabetes prevention and education and is committed to the overall mission and efforts of the Association.

As a supporter of the movement to Stop Diabetes, Janssen had a large presence in 2014 as a sponsor of the American Diabetes Association's American Diabetes Month (ADM), which takes place each November. ADM focuses on raising awareness and understanding of diabetes, its consequences, management and prevention of complications. The company's support encourages those affected by the disease to come together as a community to Stop Diabetes.

Additionally, Janssen worked together with the Association and the Washington Redskins to support the Redskins' health and wellness initiative with the Tackle Diabetes game taking place on December 7, 2014 when the Redskins faced the St. Louis Rams. The effort, "Teaming Up to Take on Diabetes," encourages the community to manage diabetes better and spread awareness of ways to avoid complications. In addition, it helps consumers understand the risks and support provided by health care professionals while empowering them to live a healthy lifestyle.

The American Diabetes Association thanks Janssen Pharmaceuticals for all their efforts and continued support to Stop Diabetes.
