Spreading Some Holiday Cheer!!!

Holidays are an opportunity to catch up with friends and family. But the focus on food and eating during this season can be very tough, especially for families dealing with diabetes. Remember that holiday meals and traditions don’t have to disrupt your diabetes control. With a little preparation, you'll be ready to face any holiday head-on and still enjoy it. 


Recognizing the Importance of National Health Observances

December 1

AIDS Day (World)

The terms “HIV” and “AIDS” can be confusing to many because both terms refer to the same disease. However, “HIV” refers to the virus itself, and “AIDS” refers to the late stage of HIV infection, when an HIV-infected person’s immune system is severely damaged and has difficulty fighting diseases and certain cancers. Before the development of certain medications, people with HIV could progress to AIDS in just a few years. But today, most people who are HIV-positive do not progress to AIDS. That’s because if you have HIV and you take ART consistently, you can keep the level of HIV in your body low. This will help keep your body strong and healthy and reduce the likelihood that you will ever progress to AIDS. It will also help lower your risk of transmitting HIV to others.

For more information about the difference between HIV and AIDS, see What Is HIV/AIDS? Or visit
