Introducing National Diabetes Awareness Month

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month: a time dedicated to raising awareness about diabetes, its impact on millions of lives, and the ongoing fight against the disease. This month emphasizes the importance of prevention, management, and education in alleviating the burden of diabetes. Traditionally celebrated with health fairs, educational seminars, and fundraising events, National Diabetes Awareness Month is associated with a strong sense of solidarity and determination as communities come together to support those affected and to further research and advocacy efforts.

Piccles: A New Way to Engage this National Diabetes Awareness Month

Piccles offers an innovative platform to complement the theme of National Diabetes Awareness Month by providing a space for expression, education, and community building.
