National Diabetes Awareness Month/year

We have written about athletes and diabetes before (March 8, 2010 and Aug. 22, 2009). We are now coming to the end of National Diabetes Awareness Month. As we also have written before, these months that rally our attention and support are not the end all and be all of the effort to combat the problem at all. They are but a time to get the attention and support to spike for a period of time. The work must continue through the next 11 months. Let’s see that be the case with diabetes as well and we can check on our progress in 2011.

The campaign slogan for 2010 was “Let’s take control of diabetes. Now.” No reason to stop now.
