This November, the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) and its partners are proud to support National Diabetes Month 2014. Throughout National Diabetes Month, the NDEP and its partners will promote “Be Smart About Your Heart: Control the ABCs of Diabetes” to help people with diabetes learn they are at greater risk for heart disease, and also how they can lower that risk by managing the diabetes ABCs: the A1C test, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Stop Smoking.


NDEP has a variety of resources for you to use to promote diabetes management. Share these free resources* with your patients and partners:
