Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

World Diabetes Day is Sunday, November 14, with Events in the U.S and Abroad

This year’s commemoration of World Diabetes Day marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin. In recognition of this occasion, events are being held across the United States and around the world. A virtual panel discussion, hosted by Lions Clubs International in California, features a panel discussion of new technologies, research toward a cure as well as the psychological aspects of diabetes. Lions Clubs have supported programs for people who are blind or visually impaired since 1917 and this event, focusing on diabetes, now a leading cause of vision loss, underscores their commitment.  You can join in the event through Free Registration for World Diabetes Day 2021. Check out other events and more information announced by the International Diabetes Federation: WDD Events in United States and about WDD.
