Each year we recognise World Diabetes Day on November 14, and more broadly World Diabetes Month throughout November. We see these events as an opportunity to raise the profile of diabetes research throughout Otago and Southland. We change what we do each year, but throughout the month of November we often:
- Undertake on-the-spot blood glucose testing in public spaces and businesses around Dunedin.
- Light up buildings around Dunedin in Blue, the World Diabetes Day colour.
- Host ‘Do blue’ casual clothes days in schools and workplaces.
- Host public education events including talks from Diabetes Researchers and physicians.
