NOVEMBER IS DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH
First AME Church of Los Angeles
Join the Movement to Stop Diabetes
Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions. Nearly 24 million children and adults in the United States live with diabetes. In fact, if current trends continue, one in three children born today will face a future with diabetes. These statistics, coupled with the personal struggles of people with diabetes and their loved ones, underscore the need for action. So, during American Diabetes Month this November, the American Diabetes Association is launching a bold movement to confront, fight and eventually Stop Diabetes.
