Diabetes Awareness Month- Join Us!

November is National Diabetes Month and November 14th is World Diabetes Day. 2021 marks 100 years since the discovery of insulin; ultimately changing the lives of people with type-1 diabetes, and now the millions of people with type 2 diabetes who progress to need exogenous insulin. While insulin is life-sustaining for millions around the world, it can be expensive and hard to acquire, even in the United States of America. Diabetes is treatable due to the discovery of insulin, but type 2 diabetes continues to increase, despite being, for most people, a preventable disease.

Join us this month as we engage, educate and empower the SCV to address diabetes risk and improve blood sugar control.
