November is American Diabetes Month
For those diagnosed with diabetes, everyday decisions can sometimes seem overwhelming. But there are ways the Indian Health Service can help. The combined efforts of clinicians and the Special Diabetes Program for Indians grantees across the country have produced remarkable improvements in clinical outcomes for American Indians and Alaska Natives. Although diabetes has no cure, IHS is working to help prevent the spread of diabetes and help our communities stay healthy.
