The next couple of months are going to be the very definition of the word busy. There is so much going on that breathing will definitely be a luxury. I’m not talking about the everyday things that happen as part of regular life and work. I’m talking about some big stuff! With diabetes being in the spotlight from now until the middle of December, here are some dates for your diary that are also in mine.
WORLD DIABETES DAY – 14 November
There are always lots of activities on and around World Diabetes Day – keep an eye out on your local Diabetes Australia website to see. In Victoria alone, we have things happening for most of the week – many of which you can come along to.
And don’t forget to do the BIG BLUE TEST every day from now until WDD to help people with diabetes in need.
TAKE STEPS FOR GOOD HEALTH – 1 December
This exciting new event is the perfect way to kick off Summer. A fun run/ walk around the Tan followed by a picnic in the park. I’ve committed to do the 8km walk (stop you laughing now). I’ll be buying new runners in honour of this exercising achievement! Register now!
WORLD DIABETES CONGRESS – 2 – 6 December
The eyes of the global diabetes world will be firmly on Melbourne as the International Diabetes Federation brings its World Diabetes Congress to our great city. There is no better opportunity to hear about the latest and greatest in diabetes research and technology. And what better place to catch up with cyberspace and real-life diabetes friends. Details are here – including how to register for the special consumer price of just $99 per day. I’ll be there chairing a session and doing some presentations. Make sure you find me!
I hope to see you at many of these events. It’s going to be great having diabetes front and centre in many people’s minds.
