November is National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM) and at JDRF we honor all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) by raising awareness and funds for this disease. We do so when we wear blue, share our T1D footprints, speak to our political representatives and family and friends about T1D, and show that #T1DLooksLikeMe. NDAM is about spreading awareness of the realities of life with T1D—like how to spot it, what must be done to take care of it, what research is being conducted. This helps everyone be better educated about the living with T1D.
Throughout the month of November we will be sharing the best ways you can support JDRF and the T1D community.
Some important dates to note for November:
- T1DAY: November 1
- World DIabetes Day: November 14
- Giving Tuesday: November 27
Stay tuned for more information!
