November is American Diabetes Month

From the American Diabetes Association: “November is #AmericanDiabetesMonth. It’s our chance to show the world what life with diabetes is really like. Every year, our community comes together to ring the alarm on the diabetes epidemic. For the millions of us who are at risk for it, it’s a time to get educated, find resources and make sure all those around us are aware of their risk, too.
