November is National Diabetes Month
Our partners are gearing up for National Diabetes Month. Here is some of what they have to offer:
November is National Diabetes Month and the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is Changing the Way Diabetes Is Treated by working to help people better understand how to make the necessary changes in their day-to-day life in order to prevent type 2 diabetes, manage their diabetes to prevent complications, and live healthier lives. Make a plan and find tools to reach your goals here.
This month, the American Diabetes Association will ask people to share a personal image, on the Association's Facebook page representing what “A Day in the Life of Diabetes” means to them. The image can be a picture of themselves or someone they care about, or otherwise represent how the disease impacts their lives. The image will then make up a larger mosaic image that will embody the message of “A Day in the Life of Diabetes.” To encourage individuals to share photos of A Day in the Life of Diabetes on Facebook, CVS/pharmacy will donate $1 to the American Diabetes Association for every photo/image uploaded, up to $25,000.
