What is World Diabetes Day?

World Diabetes Day is the primary global awareness campaign for diabetes, celebrated each year on November 14.

Helpful Hints

Before you sign the petition on DiabetesDoodle, uncheck the box to receive information from iPetitions, which is checked by default. If you do not uncheck the box, a donation page appears after you sign. At this point, your signature has been counted, and you can choose to close the donation page without clicking “Next.” The money being collected does not support a diabetes cause.

Keep up with our progress toward a cure & more
