Celebrating the Silver Linings of Diabetes

Celebrating the Silver Linings of Diabetes - One Drop

A diabetes diagnosis doesn’t have to hold you back. In fact, for many people living with diabetes, it can feel something like a superpower. For National Diabetes Awareness Month (#NDAM), we’re shining a light on the silver linings of having diabetes and the resilience, determination, and joy of our community.

Join us for a month of activities celebrating the more than 122 million Americans living with diabetes or prediabetes today. Together, let’s continue to advocate for ourselves, so that we can all live better.
