American Diabetes Month – November 2011
November 1-30, 2011 – United States
The American Diabetes Association will pay tribute to those who have raised their hand and work to Stop Diabetes every day. People, places and programs that are working hard to change the future of diabetes will be highlighted. At the same time, Americans will be rallied to join these champions in the Stop Diabetes movement by pledging to take actions against diabetes.
Each week, a different focus in the Stop Diabetes movement will be featured.
• Week 1: Fighting for the Future – Giving a voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes and fighting for diabetes funding.
• Week 2: Impacting Communities – Building relationships around the country to empower people to take control of their health.
• Week 3: Celebrating Health – Recognizing courageous people who have overcome the obstacles of living with diabetes and the places that have helped them.
• Weeks 4 & 5: Commitment to a Cure – Spotlighting the important research taking place that will lead us toward an eventual cure.
