National Diabetes Month

National Diabetes Month

What better month to start my new job in Diabetes Education than the month of November – National Diabetes Month! Thanks to those of you who have emailed with congrats about the new job – I’m really enjoying it and think it will be a wonderful opportunity for me. Here are a few points you may want to consider:

– I will be doing a cooking demo at Oktibbeha County Hospital in Starkville, MS tonight at 5:30pm – everyone is invited, so please come! I’m going to talk about healthy appetizer options for Thanksgiving!

– Also, let me know if you are in the Golden Triangle Mississippi Area (Oktibbeha, Clay, Webster, Winston, Choctaw, Lowndes, Noxubee Counties) and would like to be a “Community Health Promoter.” As a community health promoter, you would be a great resource to me as I begin doing diabetes education in your county. It would be a volunteer position and not take much time. This would be a great way for you to attend a few programs and learn more about diabetes! Just reply to the newsletter if you’re interested and I’ll send you more information.
