Bronx Community Health Network wishes you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving with family and friends.
Did you know that 1 in 11 Americans today has diabetes? Despite its prevalence, diabetes is an invisible disease. It affects men and women, people young and old, and people of all races, shapes and sizes. Often there are no outward signs from the 29 million Americans who fight this chronic illness every day. That’s why there is a critical need to foster awareness and education while breaking down stereotypes, myths and misunderstandings about this growing public health crisis that affects so many of us.
This is exactly why the American Diabetes Association marks each November as American Diabetes Month: to bring extra attention to the disease and the tens of millions of people affected by it.
If you have diabetes or are trying to manage your weight, don’t let food stress you out this holiday season. Check out some tips for navigating the Thanksgiving feast at
BCHN website on November 23 and 24 for an updated list of locations serving free Thanksgiving dinner. We will update as new information becomes available.
