November Heritage Months 2024

Native American Heritage Month

It’s a time dedicated to learning about the unique history, diverse cultures, and contributions that Native Americans have made to society. They have distinct traditions and languages that are connected to their ancestral land. Celebrate their culture all month long while bringing awareness to the hardship including assimilation and displacement they have faced in history.

November Awareness Months 2024

National Veterans and Military Families Month

November is a time to honor those who have served in the military and the families who made sacrifices. It’s an opportunity to give respect to their commitment to protecting American freedoms.

National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

Six million Americans live with Alzheimer’s Disease and almost three million new cases are diagnosed annually. This progressive and deadly brain disease has no cure. However, researchers are still working hard to discover its cause. This month, we celebrate those living with the disease, their caregivers, and the healthcare professionals who treat them.


Every November, men grow their mustaches to raise awareness about men’s health issues like suicide or prostate cancer. The awareness month hopes to educate about the importance of early cancer detection as prostate cancer doesn’t typically have any warning signs or early-stage symptoms.
