Awareness Projects

World Diabetes DAy

IDF

 

World Diabetes Day is a campaign that features a new theme chosen by the International Diabetes Federation each year to address issues facing the global diabetes community. While the themed campaigns last the whole year, the day itself is celebrated on November 14, to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1921.

 

Activities include:  Go Blue for Breakfast, Bring Diabetes to Light, WDD Treasure Hunt, and even a Selfie App to bring the international symbol of diabetes, the blue circle, into your selfie.

The Big Blue Test

Diabetes Hands Foundation

 

DHF sponsors support communities, advocacy opportunities, and November's The Big Blue Test--a program that rallies communities to experience the impact that small changes can have on their health.  Throughout the year, DHF raises awareness through the "No Sugar Added" Poetry contest and other activities.
