2014 Diabetes Awareness Campaign

Diabetes Day Breakfast Pictures 3 How did associations participate? There were many options (and we accept a report no matter how many participants you had, no project is too small):

  • Cooperate with a local restaurant to serve healthy breakfast foods (try to get random people to go there);
  • Invite your community, friends and family to a healthy breakfast;
  • Promote a cooking event/competition/class;
  • Post a selfie with a healthy breakfast.

We also encouraged association to, if they could, light up a Building in Blue, and try to raise some media attention towards this disease!

All of the images and posts on social media included the hashtag #IPSFDiabetesAwareness and final reports/photos were sent to Ms. Bárbara Scoralick Villela (publichealth@ipsf.org), Chairperson of Public Health, and Mr. Tomás Freitas (healthawareness@ipsf.org), Public Health Awareness Coordinator. Finally, we also encouraged our members to register their events at the IDF website.

But, if during World Diabetes Day, November 14, your association was not able to participate in such events, do not worry about it! We still encourage you to promote diabetes awareness regardless of the time of the year. Reports from associations are welcome at any point in time.

Do you have an idea for the 2015 Diabetes Awareness Campaign? You can e-mail Ms. Bárbara Scoralick Villela (publichealth@ipsf.org) with your suggestion.
