October 26, 2017 World Diabetes Day: 14 November 2017

The impact of diabetes on women is substantial and, in recognition, “Women and Diabetes––Our Right to a Healthy Future” is the theme of World Diabetes Day (WDD) on 14 November 2017.

Learn more about WDD, access resources, and find out what you can do about this escalating health threat by going to: www.idf.org/our-activities/world-diabetes-day/wdd-2017.html. An additional resource for ophthalmologists and eye care providers in low- and high-resource areas is the ICO Guidelines for Diabetic Eye Care, which was updated this year.

The International Diabetes Federation––the organization behind WDD––will be holding their annual congress in Abu Dhabi 4–8 December 2017, and representatives of the ICO will be in attendance. Find information and register, at: http://www.idf.org/our-activities/congress/idf-2017-abu-dhabi.html.
