November is American Diabetes Month
One of the American Diabetes Association’s primary objectives is to raise awareness and understanding of diabetes, its consequences, management and prevention of type 2 diabetes. American Diabetes Month is an important element in this effort, with programs designed to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the people impacted by the disease. In 2012, the Association launched a socially focused initiative for American Diabetes Month called A Day in the Life of Diabetes, to demonstrate the impact diabetes has on our families and communities across the country. In 2013, the American Diabetes Association will continue to grow the campaign with a host of online and offline program elements. The movement to Stop Diabetes® is not over and we will continue to call for individuals to take a public stand via the Association’s social media channels and other online properties, to support the movement. Using imagery, the power of social engagement and celebrity outreach, the Association will continue to shine a light on the issue of diabetes and those who live with it each and every day.
Theme: A Day in the Life of Diabetes
Diabetes doesn’t stop. It is 24/7, 365 days a year. To showcase the extraordinary effort it takes to live a day with the disease, the American Diabetes Association will continue to ask people to submit a personal image to its Facebook mosaic representing what A Day in the Life of Diabetes means to them. The image can be a picture of themselves or someone they care about, or otherwise represent how the disease impacts their lives. The image will then make up a larger mosaic image that will embody the message of A Day in the Life of Diabetes.
