AAMC observes World Diabetes Day on November 14
World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated on November 14, to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1921.
Here at AAMC, we will be celebrating World Diabetes Day by educating staff, patients, and visitors about this epidemic disease. Join us in the Southport Cafeteria on Friday, November 14 between 11:30am-1pm.
Diabetes educators and diabetes resource champions will have a variety of displays, including self-administered risk assessments, educational materials, and information diabetes management. Enter a raffle ticket to win a free massage! -Margaret McLellan
