Happy Diabetes Month – Toolkits and Resources

November is our opportunity to get the word out about diabetes.
It provides the space to:

  • Raise awareness about risk factors and actions to prevent diabetes.
  • Promote compassionate care to those living with diabetes.
  • Provide messages of hope for those living with prediabetes and diabetes. 

November is also a time to thank our amazing community of Diabetes Educators.

Your everyday actions make a world of difference in each life you touch.
Your dedication to improving diabetes care in your clinics, hospitals, schools, communities and for your fellow humans is deeply appreciated.
