November Is Diabetes Awareness Month

November is Diabetes Month, a national observance designed to raise awareness about the risk factors, symptoms, types of diabetes, and the impact this disease has every day on millions of Americans. According to the American Diabetes Association®, Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. During Diabetes Month, encourage employees to take control of their health, and for their families to encourage healthy habits such as eating healthier meals and exercising for 30 minutes a day, five times a week.

Our Diabetes Toolkit provides many ways you can support employees with diabetes at the workplace:

  • Share the handouts included
  • Post the pre-diabetes infographic included
  • Promote the Wellframe App using the flyers included.
  • Free to all Excellus BlueCross BlueShield members, the Wellframe® App gives you instant access to a dedicated care manager, dietitians, nurses, and other health care professionals to help you meet your health and wellness goals.
  • Run the Maintain, Don’t Gain challenge from before Thanksgiving to after New Year’s Day.
