World Diabetes Day Bookcrossing Release Challenge

Planned annual release between 7 and 14 November of books throughout the world bearing unique tracking code (BCID) which allows the finder to track, and follow a book's journey though its life. BookCrossers are a global community, happy to share their books by giving them to others, or leaving them where they can be found. This 'challenge' is to help raise awareness of diabetes and to encourage support groups to become involved.

WDD selfie app launched

The blue circle is the global symbol for diabetes but to many people around the world it still means nothing. One of the aims of World Diabetes Day is to increase awareness of the symbol and strengthen its role as a means of bringing diabetes to the attention of the general public and supporting all efforts to improve the lives of people living with diabetes and reduce the serious global threat that the epidemic represents.

Aplicación 'selfie' del DMD

Necesitamos crear conciencia sobre el círculo azul el símbolo mundial de la diabetes ya que muchos no saben lo que significa. Por ello, hemos creado la aplicación Selfie del DMD para promocionar el círculo azul de forma divertida.
