TOOL Health Observances for November

By Staff Report

Oct. 30, 2009

More than 23 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, the American Diabetes Association estimates. But another noteworthy figure may be the estimated number of people in that group who are unaware they have the disease: 5.7 million, or about 25 percent. The Wellness Council of America notes that November is American Diabetes Month, a good time for employers and employees alike to become aware of the disease and the toll it takes. Welcoa points out several other observances in November: National Adoption Month, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and the Great American Smokeout (November 19).
