Go Blue for Breakfast!

Nov 14, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

ABOUT WORLD DIABETES DAY World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated every year on November 14. The World Diabetes Day campaign is led by the InternatioDiabetes Breakfast Poster-page-001nal Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat that diabetes now poses. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2007 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public spotlight. 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.   Healthy Living and Diabetes is the World Diabetes Day theme for 2014-2016.
