World Diabetes Day Friday

From Buzz Bishop [bb]:

Vancouver Art Gallery

Friday is World Diabetes Day [wd], and there’s a few events around Vancouver to help raise money and awareness of the affliction. At noon there’s to be some hula hooping around the Vancouver Art Gallery and throughout the day Buzz Bishop will be talking about it on 95 Crave and doing interviews and auctions.

From World Diabetes Day Canada’s website:

Diabetes is serious
Diabetes is a serious disease that has reached epidemic proportions in Canada. If left untreated or improperly managed, diabetes can result in a variety of complications of including: blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and limb amputation.  However, with proper diabetes management, its complications can be prevented or delayed.

Update: The day is actually Friday, not tomorrow.  Hopefully I haven’t raised your awareness too soon.
