What is the

Dia-Beat it! Program?

Dia-Beat it! is a free program that spreads awareness by educating middle and high schoolers on diabetes. The program is run by two high school students.

Dia-Beat it! runs in 5 video sessions, each about 15 minutes long. These sessions are virtual, and adaptable to hybrid or online schedules. (Learn More About Dia-Beat it! in the Pandemic). These sessions include an engaging animated intro, a short but informative lesson, a quick message from us, a quizziz, and, depending on the session, a handout, an in-video quiz, or a relay.

Why Dia-Beat it?

The Team

Dia-Beat it! is run by two high schoolers - no one else. We genuinely care about spreading education and awareness, and aren't affiliated with any larger organization, business, or consultant. Dia-Beat it! was not started for a school or extracurricular project; it is an original organization in its own right, with a passion unlike any other.
