Gestational Diabetes Television and Poster Campaign
Women who had gestational diabetes during a pregnancy have a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes after delivering the baby. Their babies are also at risk for becoming obese and possibly developing type 2 diabetes later in life.
The DPCP launched a media campaign to encourage Hispanic women who had gestational diabetes to talk with their doctors and receive follow-up care after delivery. Hispanic women are at a greater risk for developing gestational diabetes.
The campaign consists of two 30-second television spots in Spanish, as well as a poster available in both English and Spanish.
To order free posters or watch the video, go to www.maclearinghouse.com or call 1-800-952-6637.
The DPCP develops and promotes resources and educational materials available free of charge.
Materials can be ordered or downloaded directly from the Massachusetts Health Promotion Clearinghouse website at www.maclearinghouse.com, or by calling 1-800-952-6637.
