International Diabetes Federation (IDF)

Diabetes Health Newsletter published a release from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) dated May 18, 2010.

The IDF has kicked off its World Diabetes Day (NOV 14 each year) campaign under the slogan "Let's take control of diabetes. Now."

Quote “This year's slogan is in line with the campaign's five-year focus (2009-2013) on Diabetes Education and Prevention. For World Diabetes Day 2010, the campaign will build on the achievements of last year by strengthening global awareness of diabetes and empowering people to get active and take control of their health to prevent the disease and its complications.” Unquote

While I doubt I will do anything to support IDF other that publish this, I will be trying to assist my local diabetes organization where I am able.

For those that like the social sites and other sites, the World Diabetes Day campaign can be followed online at WorldDiabetesDay.org, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
