November is Diabetes Awareness Month

November is Diabetes Awareness month and November 14th is World Diabetes Day.  Diabetes can lead to serious diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves and teeth.  The Lions are helping educate the world on the need for diabetes research, programs and initiatives.   Diabetes is the number one cause of preventable blindness.

District 12N Lions can help by educating our communities about diabetes .  Some of the clubs conduct diabetes screenings while another club does A1C testing, but education is key.  Lions Clubs International has several informative pamphlets on their website as well as suggestions on what you can do for your local communities – www.lionsclubs.org.  You can also reach out to the District 12N Diabetes Chair, Lion Doug Haseltine and he will be more than happy to provide you with more information.  Lion Doug’s contact information can be found in the District 12N Directory located on this website.
