Diabetes Awareness license plates now available

This year, Illinois joined three other states in establishing a diabetes awareness license plate, a plate which would set aside $25 for the Diabetes Research Check Off Fund.

With the legislation creating the new plate now signed into law, Representatives Tom Cross (R-Oswego), Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) and Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake) are encouraging Illinoisans to sign up for the new plates.

In order for the plates to to enter production, 1500 must be requested. The Legislative Diabetes Caucus has set November 14, Diabetes Awareness Day, as its goal for reaching that mark.

More information from the Illinois Legislative Diabetes Caucus, including the registration procedure, is available here.
