November Is American Diabetes Month

November Is American Diabetes Month!
Did you know that 1 in 11 Americans today has diabetes? Despite its prevalence, diabetes is an invisible disease. It affects men and women, people young and old, and people of all races, shapes and sizes. That’s why there is a critical need to foster awareness and education while breaking down stereotypes, myths and misunderstandings about this growing public health crisis that affects so many of us. This is exactly why the American Diabetes Association marks each November as American Diabetes Month—To learn more and view #ThisIsDiabetes stories from around the country, check out diabetes.org/adm.
