New York, NY (PressExposure) November 13, 2009 -- After months of preparation, Diabetic Rockstar, in partnership with American Diabetes Wholesale, has officially launched their "New Member Welcome Kits".

These new kits each include sample diabetes-management products and a blood-glucose testing meter, and are available to members of Diabetic Rockstar's online social networking community at no cost.
"We're very excited to launch these kits," says Christopher Thomas, founder and president of Diabetic Rockstar Inc., "As an organization we strive to help diabetics, especially the uninsured, and being able to offer people a complimentary testing meter, and everything else included, for free, is a huge step forward towards achieving our charitable goals. To launch it during Diabetes Awareness Month is an added bonus!"
Diabetic Rockstar Inc. is a non-profit corporation, and the namesake website, http://www.diabeticrockstar.com, is a social networking community for those affected by diabetes. The Welcome Kits will include information on the organization and partner American Diabetes Wholesale (ADW), Diabetic Rockstar branded merchandise, sample diabetes products, coupons and a glucose testing meter.
