Our CBIZ Wellbeing team highlights key observances and corresponding resources to help our clients make each month more meaningful!
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases
November is National Diabetes Month — a time when communities across the country team up to bring attention to diabetes. This year’s focus is on prediabetes and preventing diabetes. According to the CDC, more than 1 in 3 U.S. adults (88 million people) have prediabetes, but the majority of people don’t know they have it.

Caregiver Action Network
During National Family Caregivers Month, we address the new realities caregivers face with their loved ones during these uncertain times. Family caregivers manage health emergencies, juggle priorities, and suffer isolation — and this was all before COVID-19 hit. The pandemic has brought even more challenges as family caregivers manage caregiving in crisis.
