• 12-16 November - World Diabetes Week

    October 10 2018

    As in previous years, IDF Europe will capitalise on the annual World Diabetes Day to raise the awareness of diabetes. For 2018, we are organising a series of events to celebrate on the theme 'Family and Diabetes'. 

    eurMOVE 2018 

    eurMOVE is a youth-led campaign to call for more physical activity, whether one has diabetes or not. Diabetes is a 24/7/365 job. People with diabetes need to manage their disease every day, every hour, every minute of their lives - 365 days per year, or 8.760 hours or 525.600  minutes!
