Looking for ways to engage, learn more, tweak your management, or meet others living with diabetes? We asked the community for the best events and went to the organizations to share with us what they are doing this month.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, but you know what? If you’re reading this, you’re probably already very aware of diabetes. Let’s make this month about us and how we can live our best lives. So this year, we decided that we’re going to concentrate on tips and advice to help you thrive. And to do so, we’re leaning on our greatest resource: you. The Diabetes Daily forums and Facebook page are full of helpful smart people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. There’s someone who’s been through everything, and they’re usually ready to help.
Every Wednesday of this month we will publish community-curated content for you to enjoy. Sign up for the Diabetes Daily newsletter to have the list delivered to your inbox every Wednesday.
Here’s our list of ways to get involved! To learn more about the the specific events offered, click the links in the table.
