We want to share our BEST resources with you!

Like we expressed last week, November is a month of sharing. What have you been sharing so far this month? As another way to give back, we thought it would be great to share some of SurroundHealth’s best resources (as voted on by our members) with you. Each week for the rest of the month, we will share a bundle of resources under a specific topic that our members have deemed useful—and hopefully you’ll find them useful too!

Since World Diabetes Day took place this week (Nov. 14th), we figured a great place to start was diabetes content. Affecting a huge chunk of the world’s population, diabetes is a disease that hits home for many, and these resources have been found to be extremely useful and informative for many of the health care professionals in our community.

A couple of articles…
