June 10-16 is National Men’s Health Week
National Men's Health Week (June 10-16) and Father’s Day (June 16) are opportunities to help men in your community make healthy changes to prevent type 2 diabetes or manage the disease. Encourage men to take control of their health by sharing real life stories of NDEP volunteers Haywood, David, and Sterling, and using NDEP’s 4 Steps to Manage Your Diabetes For Life brochure and the Get Real! You Don't Have to Knock Yourself Out to Prevent Diabetes tip sheet.
Plan Ahead to Stay Healthy While Traveling
Whether you are living with diabetes or are taking steps to lower your chances for getting type 2 diabetes, it’s important to plan ahead for travel. NDEP has tips and resources to help people plan for a healthy travel season.
