Cintas Teams with Diabetes Group to Combat Disease
Cintas Corp., which specializes in providing first-aid and safety supplies as well as rental uniforms to customers nationwide, recently announced a partnership with the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Cintas, Mason, OH, is teaming up with the ADA to help people living with diabetes thrive in the workplace, according to news reports.
This effort fits perfectly with the ADA’s mission, which is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by the disease, the company said.
“As a national supporter of the National Diabetes Association, a global authority on diabetes, we hope to engage educate and expand awareness of diabetes and offer assistance to individuals who are impacted by it,” said Mark Carter, president and COO of Cintas’ first-aid and safety division. “Nothing is more important to a business than the health and safety of its employees. More than 30 million Americans have diabetes, but early detection and treatment can reduce the risk of developing complications. It’s important for employers to be aware that there may be people with diabetes in their workplace, so they can be proactive about offerings in their first-aid kit.”
Cintas is working in concert with the ADA to provide people living with diabetes a variety of approved first-aid products suitable for people with the disease in the workplace.
“Nearly half the adults in the United States live with diabetes or prediabetes, so it’s absolutely essential that we meet them where they are – whether at work, school or play,” says John Agos, chief strategic development officer for the ADA. “We’re excited to collaborate with Cintas and bring products that help those living with diabetes thrive in the workplace.” Click here for details.
