About the Campaign

For Your SweetHeart™ is a U.S. initiative to raise awareness of the link between diabetes and heart disease and to encourage people with type 2 diabetes to know their heart disease risk and speak to their healthcare provider, for the sake of their health and the people they cherish the most.

For Your SweetHeart was developed and sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and Eli Lilly and Company. Elements of the campaign including the Heart You Quiz were reviewed and validated by a steering committee of leading cardiologists and endocrinologists.
