Check It Out

November 2015 is National Diabetes Month!

Did you know in the library’s glass display case on the upper floor that there's a great title honoring this theme to check out?

It is called, Diabetes Rising : How a Rare Disease Became a Modern Pandemic, and What to Do About It. It was written by Dan Hurley and published in 2010. Its call number is: RC660.4 H874 2010.

It can be found through the SWC Library’s Search the Library Catalog webpage. Just type in the title in the search box and you can find it in the results list.

This book discusses the historic rise of type 1 and type 2 diabetes from ancient times to today. Diabetes Rising examines how various factors can cause people to acquire this disease and proposes a number of theories highlighting some of the causal risk factors that can be avoided.

Come to the library to see more National Diabetes-related titles on display this month.
