Diabetes Canada in our biggest national awareness campaign ever! This year, Diabetes Canada has been promoting the slogan Strike Out Stigma, this is to raise awareness that people affected with Diabetes are fighting a stigma every day: Whether it is at work, at school or at home. Diabetes Canada has made a promise to End Diabetes and in doing this we MUST educate people on the dangers of the Stigma attached to Diabetes. Did you know that every day in Alberta alone, we have 4000 people in hospital with diabetic complications??? Also, one in 3 Canadians has diabetes or prediabetes. This is an epidemic that needs to be stopped.
