Now is the time for us to stand up and be heard!

Take 10 minutes out of your busy schedule and watch this video. I cannot tell you how important this is. There is a UN Summit taking place next month and Diabetes will be a big part of the discussions on the table. Leaders from around the world will be discussing an action plan, and debate if they should make a goal to decrease deaths from noncommunicable diseases by 25% by 2025. (Personally, I don't know what they are debating...my first instinct is to say, heck yeah! But some countries don't think it can be done. I for one feel that the world can accomplish anything it sets its mind to. They just have to try.) If ever you have thought to take action...the time is now. We need to be heard. Something needs to be done. We can't let the world sleepwalk any longer. They need to know that there are too many deaths, too much suffering because of this disease. Watch this interview and then consider what you can do to bring attention to this ground breaking summit.



If you live in NY, or near to NY, here is an event you can attend to bring much needed publicity to the summit...
