November National Health Observances: Diabetes, COPD, and Antibiotic Resistance

Each month, we feature select National Health Observances (NHOs) that highlight important health issues that affect Americans every day. In November, we’re raising awareness about diabetes, COPD, and antibiotic resistance.

We’ve pulled together some resources below to make it easy for you to join the conversation and promote these NHOs to your networks!

  • COPD Awareness Month
    The American Lung Association celebrates COPD Awareness Month in November to raise awareness about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. Check out the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s (NHLBI) NHO resources to help spread the word. Also be sure to take a look at Healthy People 2030 objectives to improve respiratory health nationwide. And since smoking is the leading cause of COPD, help people get the support they need to quit by sharing MyHealthfinder’s resource.

We hope you’ll use these resources to promote important NHOs on your channels and with your networks. Together, we can build a healthier nation!
