Diabetes Awareness Month: What can YOU do?

Published November 10, 2020

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, a time to stay mindful of the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that over 1 in 10 Americans already have diabetes, and approximately 1 in 3 have prediabetes.  So, what can you do to help prevent or manage this chronic condition?
