Annually, November 14 is World diabetes day. 11/14 is the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who with Charles Best, discovered insulin in 1921. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2006.
WDD is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public and political spotlight.
You can also become part of something big this day and raise awareness of diabetes. Share on social media, join social media campaigns, donate in local charity events, use blue color and the symbol of diabetes – a blue circle and simply show the world that you matter! Be happy and live your life with passion, no matter how challenging sometimes it can be. May your day be filled with many beautiful things. Have a fantastic day!
