November is National Diabetes Month, a time to raise awareness about this growing health epidemic and how people living with diabetes can be impacted in the workplace. Cintas Corporation a provider of workplace first aid and safety supplies, continues to be a proud supporter of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and its fight to cure and prevent diabetes, according to a news release.
“We are proud to continue supporting the ADA in its efforts to educate and raise awareness to help people living with diabetes thrive in the workplace,” said Bob Mitchell, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Cintas. “We offer businesses essential first aid products that help drive inclusivity in the workplace for those employees who have diabetes. As a proud supporter, we are dedicated to helping the ADA drive its important mission.”
As part of a collaboration with the ADA, Cintas also provided first aid cabinets last year to ADA-sponsored summer camps across the country, and donated essential items like face masks, hand sanitizer and thermometers to their partner organization, Insulin for Life, USA, Inc., in August of this year.
“At Cintas, we recognize the importance of creating an environment that embraces employees of all backgrounds,” said Chief Diversity Officer, Max Langenkamp. “This collaboration with the ADA will encourage employers to look at their first aid kits and how they can provide products to help provide a more inclusive workplace.”
“Diabetes management is a 24/7 process that doesn’t stop while you’re on the clock,” said Charles D. Henderson, Chief Development Officer, ADA. “Thanks to Cintas’ continued support, those living and working with diabetes have access to products to help in an emergency and allow them to thrive in the workplace.”
