Are you coming off the high of Halloween candy binges and coasting into the annual holiday season full of decadent plates full of comfort food like so many of us? If so, it is a great time to think about Diabetes, whether you know you have it or even if you are perhaps at risk of having this disease and not even know it.

More than 30 million US adults have diabetes, and at least 1 of 3 people will develop diabetes in their lifetime. If you have diabetes, your medical costs are probably twice as high as those for people without diabetes, and your risk of death is 50% higher. 

Risk factors include having prediabetes, being overweight, being 45 years or older, having a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes, being physically active less than 3 times per week, and ever having gestational diabetes. 

If you would like to learn more about this disease and how you can prevent and/or manage it, November is National Diabetes Month, and the CDC has a lot of great resources on their website regarding how to manage your diabetes and live a longer, healthier life. Click here for more information! -

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One in seven Colorado women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.  Breast cancer remains the third leading cause of cancer death in Colorado, killing more than 500 women annually.  At the same time, there are more than 42,000 breast cancer survivors in Colorado.  Like many cancers, the likelihood of surviving breast cancer increases dramatically with early detection and treatment. Simply put, screening saves lives! Early detection of breast cancer dramatically increases women’s chances of survival – with nearly 98% of women surviving breast cancer as a result of receiving a preventative screening. 

Please call your Provider this month and schedule an appointment for your annual Mammogram or confirm when you should make your appointment.  970.626.5123

The Women’s Wellness Connection Program (WWC) is also a statewide program that provides FREE breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic testing to uninsured and underinsured women who qualify.  Visit http://www.WomensWellnessConnection.org or call toll free 1-866-951-9355.
