    Wow, for the O is for Outrage campaign, 2000 is a low number considering how many readers this blog gets. If you’re reading this…we NEED you, we need everyone’s participation for these things. Numbers matter and when you participate in initiatives that are easy and can make a huge difference, it’s like you’re voting for your well being, for your health. Not voting means you miss out. We all do.

    Well, at least many leaders have been brought up to speed. We just gotta keep up the work :) Thanks for reporting.

    It is indeed surprising that the UN has so few summits focused on health issues. The fact that they dedicated one towards Non-CD diseases, including diabetes, and that it was attended by a lot of government officials is a good thing on its own. But as usual, the good seems to be mixed with the not-so-good news. Despite the aspirational speeches, real progress and action seems to be far away. Not much news on type 1 diabetes in specific either.

    Fully agreed though that it is up to us to keep promoting and advocating our cause.

    The first part of progress is showing up. Now we need to get people who care to work together to try to do something. Since Michelle Obama’s mantra as first lady is childhood obesity, diabetes type 2, especially in children should be of special concern to her. Lets let the leaders know we appreciate them showing up, but individuals are suffering. Diabetes prevention has been shown to be “cost effective” as well. Make the world a healthier happier place and save money at the same time. How can they not stop talking and start participating?
