Diabetes Awareness Month each November is designed to focus attention on preventing and controlling diabetes. Since nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, this effort seems warranted. This program will focus on improving understanding of the causes and prevention of diabetes, particularly Type 2 diabetes.
