National Aboriginal Diabetes Awareness Day, Friday, May 4, 2012.
Greetings from the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association (NADA) staff and Board of Directors!
On April 30, 1999, Assembly of First Nations Grand Chief Phil Fontaine proclaimed the first Friday in May as “National Aboriginal Diabetes Awareness Day”. Since then, thousands of children, adults and Elders have participated in community walks, gatherings and events that promote the prevention and management of Type 2 diabetes.
This year, NADA is preparing to distribute a DVD: Train the Trainer as a companion guide to “The Complete Diabetes Guide for Type 2 Diabetes” by award-winning author Karen Graham. This DVD is still in production and will be ready for distribution later in May. This DVD will be useful for the Community Diabetes Prevention workers or ADI workers as they address the challenges of diabetes in their communities.
Here are two other resources that NADA is promoting for the National Aboriginal Diabetes Awareness Day:
- I encourage you to visit the Just Move It website. There are many successful events listed on this website that will inspire you to participate in something local. I encourage you to listen to the digital stories available on this website. They will inspire you!
- NADA has updated the National Aboriginal Resource Directory. There are many diabetes services and resources available for you in your area. This resource is a free downloadable. Get yours today!
Together, we can make the National Aboriginal Diabetes Awareness Day on May 4th, 2012 a fun, educational and inspirational event so that the devastating effects of diabetes among our people and in our communities will be a part of our past and not our future.
World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 in response to growing comcerns about the escalating health threat that diabetes now poses. It is celebrated on November 14 of each year to mark the birthday of Dr. Banting, who along with Charles Best discovered insulin in 1922.
The World Diabetes Day campaign is led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2007 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public spotlight. This year sees the second of a five-year campaign that will address the growing need for diabetes education and prevention programmes.
