World Diabetes Day - 14 November 2020
A focus on diabetes awareness and prevention runs for the whole month of November, taking in World Diabetes day on November 14.
Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness, amputation, heart disease, kidney failure and early death. However, simple action to control your risk of developing type 2 diabetes can reduce the risk.
With type 2 diabetes still on the rise, workplaces can play an important role in helping people become aware of their risk and take steps to reduce it.
Keep an eye on Diabetes New Zealand's website for details about what might be happening here.
