The video was developed as part of their participation in the Big Blue Test which asks people with diabetes to test their blood sugar, exercise for 14-20 minutes, test again, and share their experience on BigBlueTest.org. Each test supports provision of supplies to diabetes humanitarian charities in the US and around the world.
Dr. Ana Valdes, Medical Director for St. Anthony’s Medical Clinic, shares how the Big Blue Test grant they received and their participation in the program made an impact in their patients. She encourages everyone to do the Big Blue Test and learn as they did: help yourself and help communities like St. Anthony’s.
More than 8,000 people did the Big Blue Test in 2011. This resulted in a total donation of $75,000 from Roche Diabetes Care to support 5 nonprofit groups that work in regions with a high incidence of diabetes in the US, and the work of Life for a Child in Latin America.
SFCCC partner St. Anthony’s Medical Clinic received a $10,000 Big Blue Test grant. We are very proud of the work that St. Anthony's does in providing high quality care to the Tenderloin, one of the poorest neighborhoods in San Francisco.
Congratulations to the staff at St. Anthony's!
