November is American Diabetes Month

We want to draw our nation's attention on the disease and the tens of millions of people affected by it. Most people have friends, family, and neighbors who are managing the day-to-day triumphs and challenges of the disease. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Gestational Diabetes is developed by pregnant women usually around the 24th week of pregnancy. Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older adults but can appear in young people.

According to health research, chronic diseases account for seven out of ten deaths in America, yet a majority of these are preventable and even reversible.

It is our desire to bring more attention to the need of becoming a healthier community. We partner with other organizations and individuals who promote health principles.

May you be encouraged through this site in using good health practices that will improve your quality of life.

You will find a variety of health articles, recipes and videos offering some tips on healthy living.

We offer seminars and literature that target chronic diseases—such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes—which are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.

These diseases account for 7 of every 10 deaths and affect the quality of life for millions of Americans. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable.

Eating nutritious food, being physically active and avoiding tobacco use can prevent or control the devastating effects of these diseases.
