Learn More About Sugar Medical and National Diabetes Awareness Month 2020

November is an important month for diabetes awareness. November is recognized as National Diabetes Awareness Month and we celebrate World Diabetes Day on November 14th each year. Both events hope to create awareness for diabetes, both Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. We at Sugar Medical support NDAM and World Diabetes Day by donating 10% of sales in November to support two organizations that educate, bring awareness, and help fund research for a cure for diabetes. The two organizations are the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and Beyond Type 1.

More About the National Diabetes Awareness Month 2020 and JDRF

  • Founded in 1970, JDRF was conceptualized by two moms who wanted to help their children and other TID patients to beat the disease.
  • The entire month of November is dedicated to TID. For instance:
    • November 1 is observed as T1Day.
    • November 14th is observed as the World Diabetes Day.
  • Giving Tuesday will be observed on December 01, 2020. The organization encourages its community members to share thoughtful gifts on this day to make lives easier for people with TID.
  • The theme for the World Diabetes Day 2020 is the Nurse and Diabetes. Through this, JDRF aims to honor nurses who care for diabetes patients.
  • This year, the organization has decided to celebrate the power of its TID community with the much thoughtful “Power of Us” campaign.
  • It is encouraging the members of the community to share anecdotes about their challenges and their determination through social media posts throughout the month.
