DFT Makes A Comeback!
DFT is back and back with a bang! We couldn’t have chosen a better month for the come back, other than NOVEMBER!!
The American Diabetes Association observes Diabetes Month every November. Raising awareness of this ever-growing disease is one of the main efforts behind the mission of the Association. American Diabetes Month® (ADM) is an important element in this effort, with programs designed to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are impacted by the disease.

The Blue Circle on the top is the Universal Blue Circle Symbol for Diabetes, also known as Diabetes mellitus.
The Food Triangle shown at the bottom part of the badge, is the “suggested” food triangle for a diabetic.
