DANCING FOR DIABETES
 
Who I Am . . .
 
My name is Natalka and many people don't know that in addition to being a dancesport competitor, I am a Registered Nurse & I work as a Diabetes Care Specialist for a diabetes company called Novo Nordisk Inc. whose mission is to change and ultimately defeat diabetes by changing how diabetes is treated and how it is viewed around the world.I also represent a personal initiative called "Dancing For Diabetes" . Every time I dance, I let people know that dancing is a form of exercise, which is an important activity that can help prevent diabetes and its complications.  My initiative is to raise awareness of the need to increase physical activity in the United States.
What I Do . . .

Through the "Dancing For Diabetes" initiative, I bring awareness to diabetes, which afflicts more than 20 million people in America and over six million people who have diabetes who don't even know it!  Within the next year, more than 224,000 Americans will die from complications of diabetes.

 
By finding an activity that you love to do, you will more likely continue to do it every day and help prevent diabetes!
Exercise & Diet was shown to have a greater impact on preventing diabetes related complications than any medications.
