IDF Webinar – Kids and Diabetes in Schools

12 augustus 2022

On September 1 at 14:00 CEST, IDF will host a webinar on the importance of physical activity to manage and prevent diabetes.

This online event, developed as part of the IDF Kids and Diabetes in Schools (KiDS) programme, will foster a discussion on the importance of promoting physical activity to improve the management of all types of diabetes and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Panellists will include healthcare professionals, institutional representatives, professional athletes living with diabetes and diabetes advocates.

Education to protect tomorrow is the theme of World Diabetes Day this November. Activities will focus on highlighting the need for better access to quality diabetes education for health professionals and people living with diabetes. Check out our posters and web visuals for use in awareness activities to support the campaign. Stay tuned for more supporting materials in the coming weeks.

To inform campaign activities, we have launched a global survey to explore access to diabetes education for healthcare professionals and people living with diabetes. If you are a healthcare professional or a person living with diabetes, we invite you to spare 10 minutes of your time to complete the survey.
