To you who believe in the mission and support the Neighborhood Health Clinic

A Diabetic Thanksgiving

by Angie Tabone

Thanksgiving is a day reserved for gathering with friends and family, slaving away in a hot kitchen, and throwing diets out the window in favor of gluttony. However, even if most/many of us associate November with turkeys and pumpkin pies, don’t forget that is also American Diabetes month.
