National Diabetes Month: Program offers community care for Latino youth

November is National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the United States bring attention to this chronic and long-lasting health condition. Diabetes affects the way one’s body turns food into energy and, until this day, although it can be treated and controlled, there is no fundamental cure for it.
