The November NARFE meeting for the Manassas, VA chapter was held on November 17 and the featured guest speaker was Linda McMillon who was works for the Prince William Hospital as a diabetes educator. Did you know that November is diabetes awareness month. And did you know that diabetes is becoming epidemic here in the United States.
Some ways to control diabetes:
