November is American Diabetes Month® and a time to communicate the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of diabetes prevention and control.
In concert with the other American Diabetes Month activities, churches across the country are engaging their communities on November 9, 2014 in celebration of ID Day at Church, a nationwide movement to Stop Diabetes.® . During American Diabetes Month we partner with communities to get the word out about the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of diabetes prevention and control. And, on ID Day, we challenge churches to become a champion for the cause by planning faith-based diabetes education programs or to set aside a moment during the service to read a diabetes education message.
What can your church do?
Join us in the fight against this life-threating disease!
No church is too large or too small to join in. The best part about participating in the campaign is that you can tailor the activities to meet the needs of your church community! The Association offers how-to guides for hosting awareness programs, as well as educational resources for participating churches. Our local offices are also available for guidance and to help ensure your church has the resources required to succeed.
Celebrate ID Day on November 9, 2014 by joining with other churches across the country to raise awareness—all on the same day!
