November is Diabetes Awareness Month

<--- Return to National Health Observances

Do you know the signs and risk factors for Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and prediabetes? We encourage you to talk to your healthcare provider if you have questions about diabetes. The Library for Health Information (LHI) can help you find additional trustworthy and reliable resources to support that conversation, including general information about diabetes, tips for eating healthier, recipes, and more.
