DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y.—The Wappingers Central School District reminds students and families that November is National Diabetes (Type 1) Awareness Month, and that World Diabetes Day is Saturday. The school district supports Project Blue, an outreach and advocacy organization for people who have Type 1 Diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes is not related to excess weight or poor nutrition. It usually starts in childhood or adolescence.

The school urges people to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes, such wearing blue on Fridays in November, and monitoring their health.
