World Diabetes Day Petition

October 29, 2009

I receive the World Diabetes Day newsletters through my email. Today I decided to check the signature petition. I was sad to see we only had 624 signatures. I immediately tweeted about it and here is the email I am sending to my friends and family:

November 14 is World Diabetes Day! It was introduced in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in response to the alarming rise in diabetes around the world. In 2007, the United Nations marked the Day for the first time with the passage of the United Nations World Diabetes Day Resolution in December 2006, which made the existing World Diabetes Day an official United Nations World Health Day.
The theme of World Diabetes Day 2009 is Education and Prevention. Education and Prevention is vital to our community. Prevention will decrease the risk of complications and education will eliminate misconceptions and inaccurate information about diabetes.
We have 320,000 people living with diabetes in Kansas City. Please sign and pass this on.
Thank You!

We only need a measly 1,000 signatures. I know we can do this. Come on DOC let’s pull together and get this done!

Talk about it because Everyone Knows Someone!
