November is American Diabetes Month. ® Observed every November, American Diabetes Month is an important element in the Association’s efforts to focus our nation’s attention on the disease and the tens of millions of people affected by it. The 2016 theme is This Is DiabetesTM. Learn about real-life stories of friends, families and neighbors managing the day-to-day triumphs and challenges of the disease. Join as we salute the 29 million Americans with diabetes—as well as their loved ones—to raise awareness and to create a sense of urgency about this growing public health crisis. Please share your story on social media using #ThisIsDiabetes. And use these materials to bring #ThisIsDiabetes to life in your community. To learn more, visit:
