Military Health System Communications Toolkit Topic and Resources for Communicators - Monthly Topics November 2021

Warrior Care - A Virtual Show of Strength

The Department of Defense, Military Services, and collaborating organizations mark Warrior Care Month in November by highlighting the strength and resilience – physically, mentally, and spiritually – of our wounded, ill, and injured service members and their families and caregivers. The effort is aimed at raising awareness of the recovery coordination resources and programs available today and inspiring year-round discussions regarding today’s warrior care priorities.

Caregiver Month

There are more than 40 million caregivers across the country who sacrifice to improve the quality of life for their loved ones. National Family Caregivers Month is dedicated to celebrating the family caregivers across the country including parents with special needs children, families and friends of wounded soldiers, and others who care for loved ones with chronic conditions and disabilities.

American Diabetes Month

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects how the body processes insulin and converts food into energy. As many as 10% of Americans live with some type of diabetes, which can be a disqualifying condition to serve in the military. Preventing the onsite of type 2 diabetes (the most commonly diagnosed type amongst adults) helps maintain readiness and the long term health of service members.

November Monthly Observances

November features several national health and military observances that you can consider highlighting on your channels. The observances in bold have graphics and content available on the November Social Media and Content page.
