National Diabetes Month

Date/Time: November 1-30, 2017

According to NIH’s National Institute of National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), “Diabetes Month is observed every November so individuals, health care professionals, organizations, and communities across the country can bring attention to diabetes and its impact on millions of Americans.

The National Diabetes Education Program’s [2017] theme is: Managing Diabetes – It’s Not Easy, But It’s Worth It. This theme highlights the importance of managing diabetes to prevent diabetes-related health problems such as heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, vision loss, and amputation. The theme also serves as a reminder to people who may be struggling with the demands of managing diabetes that they are not alone.”
