November is American Diabetes Month

There are “many faces of diabetes.”

Nearly 21 million children and adults in the United States are living with diabetes, and another 54 million people are at-risk. But those aren’t the only faces affected by diabetes. If you are a parent or loved one caring for someone with diabetes, your face is in the picture too.

Every week throughout November’s American Diabetes Month, the American Diabetes Association will focus on a different “face” of diabetes.

Care Givers - Week One
Employees – Week 2
Diabetes around the world – Week 3
At-risk populations – Week 4
Youth and Type 1 Diabetes – Week 5

For detailed info on each weeks focus, visit the American Diabetes Assoc. site
