We Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes® and take steps to improve our health! Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. You can, too!
This November 15, join us in our celebration of National Healthy Lunch Day as part of American Diabetes Month®. Commit to eating a healthy meal on this day—and every day—and encourage others in your life to do the same.
In addition, we know how important it is for people with diabetes to eat a healthy meal to maintain their blood glucose levels. As part of American Diabetes Month, we are sharing stories of real people with diabetes through our campaign theme, This Is Diabetes™. For National Healthy Lunch Day, we are encouraging those of you in the diabetes community to take a photo of what a healthy lunch means to you.
Participating is easy. We encourage you all to snap a photo of your healthy lunch and share on social media using the official hashtags #HealthyLunchDay and #ThisIsDiabetes. We’ve also provided free resources—including recipes, tip sheets and infographics to share with family and friends.
Join us for a healthy lunch on November 15!
Attend to learn more about innovative and targeted approaches to diabetes care and education.
