November Is Diabetes Month

November is American Diabetes Month. I had already talked about diabetes as a men’s health issue back in June during Men’s Health Week. GO back and read that post if you haven’t to understand how big of an issue it is for men (and women).

The November awareness event, put on by the American Diabetes Association, is a time to rally individuals, communities and families to Join the MillionsSM in the movement to Stop Diabetes®. This year, the American Diabetes Association is asking individuals to take a pledge and raise their hand to Stop Diabetes.

Beginning November 1, the public can take action by taking the American Diabetes Month pledge on Facebook.

Here are other ways you can become involved:

  1. Attend an American Diabetes Month event in your area
  2. Visit www.stopdiabetes.com
  3. Call 1-800-DIABETES
  4. Text JOIN to 69866 (standard data and message rates apply)
