IDF Europe 2010 World Diabetes Day

Let’s take control of diabetes now!

In November 2010, IDF Europe, along with its partners of the European Coalition for Diabetes celebrated World Diabetes Day at the heart of EU institutions in the European Parliament in Brussels.

The Federation organized an event on both 9 and 10 November to raise awareness on diabetes. Activities included the 'Blue Circle Test', blood sugar testing, a press conference and the screening of the IDF 'Life for a Child' documentary, Lifeblood.

It was the 5th WDD event organized at the EU Parliament. The event was supported by the EU Diabetes Working Group.


The slogan for the 2010 WDD campaign was: Let's take control of diabetes now!
It marked the second year of the five-year focus on Diabetes Education and Prevention.
