National Diabetes Month

In the past, diabetes among youth was mostly a consequence of a person’s heredity. Recently, however, an epidemic of lifestyle-induced diabetes among teens has emerged. Simply put, our nation’s youth are putting themselves at risk of a serious—and preventable—disease due to poor eating habits, lack of physical activity and misinformation about healthy lifestyle choices. November is designated as National Diabetes Month, and offers a chance to educate students about this all-too-common illness which may often be avoided through diet and exercise.
