November begins the season of giving. It’s a time filled with food, family and friends. It’s also National Family Caregivers Month and you can read about one of our ambassadors, who happens to be a rare-disease caregiver, in our latest blog. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention “Movember” and the movement to put more focus on men’s health this month, particularly suicide prevention. It’s a good opportunity to check-in with the men in your life and make sure they’re taking care of the things that matter.
