Get Ready for Diabetes Awareness Month
The theme for World Diabetes Day 2018 (November 14) is The Family and Diabetes .

More than 425 million people around the world live with diabetes, affecting their families, social circles, and entire communities. The TRAIN Learning Network has more than 50 diabetes-related learning opportunities . Access one today to get involved.
