World Diabetes Day
World Diabetes Day is an annual day of recognition of the seriousness of the diabetes epidemic around the world. The world (including Waunakee!!) is showered in the color blue to bring attention to the need for personal action to prevent or to manage diabetes in our lives.
"Diabetes is a chronic, debilitating and costly disease associated with severe complications" says the World Health Organization (WHO). Diabetes is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, blindness, chronic kidney disease, and other severe and costly medical issues.
