November Is American Diabetes Month®

Download the event calendar

At Montefiore we are steadfastly committed to the communities we serve. Because of this, we are excited at the prospect of continuing to educate and to advocate, serving as a resource during this awareness month.

This  American Diabetes Month® we are focused on providing information, outreach and resources to assist those who want to learn more about managing and preventing diabetes. The theme this year is, “Step to a Healthier Future,” which provides us with an opportunity to continue educating the community with activities and events geared toward helping people lower their diabetes risk.  At a time when the International Diabetes Federation estimates that as many as 193 million people worldwide, or close to half of all adults, are currently living with undiagnosed diabetes, we're proud to be able to help the community take those first steps

Our American Diabetes Month® program includes healthy eating demonstrations, interactive diabetes prevention workshops, educational talks and fun activities to get you moving!  Events are free of charge and open to the community, unless designated for Associates only.

As one of the leading providers of diabetes care, Montefiore is passionate about teaching members of the communities we serve how to manage and/or prevent this chronic condition.  The advice and guidance we share during this month should be taken into consideration far beyond November. We want people to make lasting changes that can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes and help people with type 1 stay as healthy as possible.

You can use our calendar to find an event or educational opportunity to suit your needs.
