November is National Diabetes Month, and NEOMED's student chapter of the American Pharmacists Association wants to raise awareness for a disease that affects the lives of so many individuals. To do so, we are encouraging everyone to go for a socially-distanced walk, run, or bike ride in support of Diabetes Awareness and the American Diabetes Association. We hope that everyone will be able to participate the entire month of November, but we highly encourage everyone to walk, run, or cycle on World Diabetes Day: Nov. 14, 2020! Share a photo from your workout on 11/14 and tag us on Instagram @aphaneomed so we can follow along and share your support. All you have to do is download the Charity Miles App, create an account, and choose the American Diabetes Association as the organization you want to support. Be sure to record your walk, run, or bike ride and sponsors on the app will donate a certain amount per mile to this organization. We are so excited for this opportunity to raise awareness for Diabetes and encourage a healthy, safe, and socially-distanced way to do so!
