November is National Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems if it’s not controlled. One in 11 Americans have diabetes — that’s more than 29 million people. The good news? People who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk by more than half if they make healthy changes. These changes include: eating healthy, increasing physical activity, and losing weight. Ask your provider today how CCCHC can help you find a cure or help lower your risk!

Great American Smokeout — November 17th

The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk. Your local health care providers are PROUD sponsors of this event and remind all patients and visitors that Sakakawea Medical Center has a Smoke and Tobacco Free campus.
