American Diabetes Month - There are “many faces of diabetes.” Nearly 21 million children and adults in the United States are living with diabetes, and another 54 million people are at-risk. But those aren’t the only faces affected by diabetes.

If you are a parent or loved one caring for someone with diabetes, your face is in the picture too. Every week throughout November’s American Diabetes Month, the American Diabetes Association will focus on a different “face” of diabetes.

Promoting healthy lifestyles in the workplace can help to prevent type 2 diabetes and its complications, saving companies thousands of dollars a year [read more]

Featured Announcement:
Daylight Saving Time


When we change our clocks - Beginning in 2007, most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time. The official spelling is Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight SavingS Time. Saving is used here as a verbal adjective (a participle). It modifies time and tells us more about its nature; namely, that it is characterized by the activity of saving daylight. It is a saving daylight kind of time. Because of this, it would be more accurate to refer to DST as daylight-saving time. [read more]
