You may know our incredible advocate and TuDiabetes founder, Manny Hernandez, is working with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) to rally support for attention on diabetes at the first-ever UN Summit on non-communicable diseases. Diabetes is among the 4 non-communicable diseases that threaten the entire world's health, prosperity and economic progress, including ours right here in the U.S. I'm going to ask you to do something now.
What you may not know is IDF has created a postcard campaign to urge President Obama to attend the summit (he's currently undecided). And we all need each other to be part of that campaign. The U.S. attending the summit will spur more action to create better resources, treatment and attention to diabetes and halting the epidemic.
Please read the article I wrote on the Huffington Post
urging President Obama to attend the summit. You can send your postcard from there. Your postcard will be sent by the end of this month as part of this grassroots movement.
Then please share the article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/riva-greenberg/diabetes-epidemic-_b_9...
so others can also send a postcard and support all of us in this first global attempt to truly do something to address diabetes and the toll it takes. Thank you. riva greenberg
