November is National Diabetes Month!
Older adults are disproportionately affected by diabetes, with 25.2% of Americans age 65+ experiencing the disease, compared to 9.4% of the general population. The CDC National Diabetes Education Program has created a Faith Leaders Toolkit with resources to help faith and other community-based leaders share information on Type 2 Diabetes prevention and management. The toolkit also provides tips on organizing activities in the community and creating an environment that supports healthy choices. The toolkit is in English and Spanish. More information can be found on the CDC National Diabetes Education Program website.
