November has been designated as National Diabetes Awareness Month by the American Diabetes Association and the National Institutes of Health. This will be a great month to raise awareness about diabetes among family & friends.
In recognition of this, we are also doing our part to celebrate the month by offering an outstanding special during the month of November:
- For the entire month of November we are reducing the price on 20 of our most popular products.
- We will also be having 2 Special Offer Coupons in recognition of World Diabetes Day. On Sunday, November 14 through Monday, November 15, we will be offering our customers Special Offer Coupons that they can use on our site on those two days.
We’re hoping that our customers take full advantage of these offers.
Here at American Diabetes Wholesale, we understand that diabetes continues to be a serious threat to the health of millions of people around the world; we are all doing what we can, both individually and collectively as a company, to “keep diabetes management affordable.”
We’re happy to do what we can to increase diabetes awareness during this month.
