November is American Diabetes Month

November is American Diabetes Month.


Caitlin Mellendorf is a nutrition educator with the University of Illinois Extension in DeWitt, Macon, and Piatt Counties and says one in ten people suffer from diabetes in some form. Being a nutrition educator, Mellendorf likes to promote food and diet options for those that need to watch what they eat.



If you battle diabetes, the University of Illinois Extension not only offers great resources for information but programs as well. Mellendorf says this November they have a special program that is soon wrapping up but it will be available to access for free on the Extension website soon.



Again, you can search University of Illinois Extension on YouTube or visit diabetes.extension.illinois.edu for lots of resources on diabetes.
