November Health Observances

November is the start of the busy holiday season with plenty of celebrations to share with family and friends. There is Thanksgiving, followed by Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and last but not least, New Year’s Eve to wrap up 2021. With all that celebrating and festive food and drink, all of our Associates and families and friends need to be sure to not only celebrate safely, but to take care of their health, so we can all celebrate many more festive holiday seasons.

The month of November highlights many health issues and concerns that can have a serious effect on anyone at any age. Lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and diabetes all have awarness months in November. The Great American Smokeout takes place in November as well.
