World Diabetes Day November 14th 2010

Diabetes is one of the world's leading cause of chronic illness.

World Diabetes Day is held every year on November 14th. This global campaign addresses issues faced by the global diabetic community. November 14th was chosen to recognise this day each year as it marks the birthday of Frederick Banting, who along with Charles Best first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922.
The Diabetes Australia website has lots of useful information about diabetes and Sutherland Library has many books on this health issue.
