What is ID Day at Church?
November is American Diabetes Month® and a time to communicate the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of diabetes prevention and control. In concert with the other American Diabetes Month activities, churches across the country are engaging their communities in celebration of ID Day at Church, a nationwide movement to Stop Diabetes® on the second Sunday in November.
What can your church do?
Pay tribute to the many in our community who are working to Stop Diabetes every day. And, challenge others to join these champions by pledging to take actions against diabetes.
No church is too large or too small to join in. The best part about participating in the campaign is that you can tailor the activities to meet the needs of your church community! The Association offers how-to guides for hosting awareness programs, as well as educational resources for participating churches. Our local offices are also available for guidance and to help ensure your church has the resources required to succeed.
