ARLINGTON, Va. – The American Diabetes Association (ADA), the world’s leading diabetes organization, today unveiled this November’s American Diabetes Month theme to showcase how Today’s Diabetes Hits Different. Throughout the month, the ADA will elevate the

different ways diabetes affects people’s lives through storytelling and highlight the advancements in diabetes technology and treatments.

Many people living with prediabetes or diabetes experience an initial shock after their diagnosis—they worry about costs and care. They wonder how day-to-day life will change and how to manage their new condition—learning about risk factors and complications, building their support community.

To bring education, assistance, and advocacy to these communities and their loved ones, ADA’s American Diabetes Month campaign focuses on these actions:

• Know the difference—learn and educate others

• Share what’s different—tell your story

• Make a difference—donate today

• Be the difference—stand up and advocate!

“In 2022 there are different ways to hit back. We have new technologies and research leading to better diabetes management, education resources, and a community that’s stronger than ever,” said Charles D. Henderson, CEO of the ADA. “We won’t stop fighting until we see a world free of diabetes and its burdens.”

The ADA is thankful to our proud supporters, CVS Health and WW for collaborating with us as we highlight how Today’s Diabetes Hits Different during national diabetes awareness month. CVS is collaborating with the American Diabetes Association on Project Power, a no-cost prevention program that tackles prediabetes and type 2 diabetes to help reduce their consequences. We need

your help to push this disease out of the most at-risk communities and give everyone an equal opportunity to live their best, healthiest lives. Donate to Project Power today when you check out at a participating CVS to support this lifesaving work. Learn more at
