Diabetes Awareness Month-November

Hello Diabetes Partners and Advocates:

It’s that time of year to recognize Diabetes. Diabetes Awareness Month is held every November and World Diabetes Day is observed every November 14th.
 
The vision of the American Diabetes Association is a life free of diabetes and all of its burdens. Raising awareness of this ever-growing disease is one of the main efforts behind the mission of the Association. American Diabetes Month® (ADM) is an important element in this effort, with programs designed to focus the nation's attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are impacted by the disease. - See more at: http://www.diabetes.org/in-my-community/american-diabetes-month.html#sthash.hMMAbAmt.dpuf
