Diabetes Awareness Month


National Diabetes Month is observed every November to draw attention to diabetes and its effects on millions of Americans.  

This year's American Diabetes Association theme for November is "Eat Well, America!"    Each week their web site will share nutritious recipes selected by noted chefs and cookbook authors for every meal of the day, including snacks and special occasion treats.  

The National Diabetes Education Program's 2015 theme "Diabetes Education and Support: Everyone Has a Role. What's Yours?" highlights the need for ongoing diabetes education and support among people with diabetes and those who care for them. 

MSU Extension offers a four-session course, Dining for Diabetes, designed for people at risk for diabetes or who have diabetes.  Contact Eileen Haraminac for more information.
