November is Diabetes Awareness Month and YOU can help!

November is Diabetes Awareness MonthThroughout the month of November, we join together with the global diabetes community to raise awareness about what it's like to live with this often-invisible disease and why it's important to find a cure now.

With the world tuned in to constant news about the coronavirus, many understand that people with diabetes are impacted at significantly higher rates if diagnosed with COVID-19. It reminds us that our singular mission to find a cure is more important than ever.

There are so many ways you can get involved and help spread the word!

Social Media Sharing

The best way to get people to take notice is to share your personal story about how diabetes affects your life. Better yet, share a video message!

We also have prepared posts that you can share with your social networks. Right click on the eye-catching image above to copy image or save image and use it on your post. Please don't forget to tag us!
