The Friday Five – November Recap
November was a busy month at HealthcareNOW Radio and this week’s Friday Five pulls together what we’ve been working on. We highlighted American Diabetes Month and The Great American Smokeout which were both celebrated this past month. Of course COVID-19 was ever present in November so we shared a free public resource to monitor the virus and also gathered together the latest COVID-19 news from the pharmaceutical industry. Finally, we reported the latest health IT product news found across all of our posts on Health IT Answers.

Spotlight On Diabetes
November is American Diabetes Month, a time to learn the latest about the disease, help spread awareness and research what you can do to help join the fight to find a cure. Let’s look back at what organizations are doing to spread awareness this month, how you can get involved, and what having diabetes in the age of COVID-19 means.
The Great American Smokeout
The American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout is a national awareness day that happens the third Thursday in November every year. Quitting smoking is one of the top three things you can do to keep your heart healthy. HealthcareNOW Radio’s Nurse Lauren, contributor of NursesNOW, offers tips to keep your heart healthy including eating right, exercising and quitting smoking.
Introducing Covid Fire: Providing the Public With Free, Local Awareness of the COVID-19 Pandemic
Covid Fire is a free public service website that allows any American to monitor the real-time status of the virus in their local area. No popups. No ads. The goal is to simply help the public better understand their risk so they can adapt their behaviour how they see fit.
