Raising Diabetes Awareness

Diabetes has been called a global epidemic, with the International Diabetes Federation estimating that by 2030 the current figure of 371 million people worldwide with the condition will have increased to 552 million.

Given the importance of diabetes to so many people in our local and global communities, Lions Clubs are involved in raising awareness, improving education, supporting testing programmes and fund-raising to support control, prevention and research.

Lions diabetes initiatives include:

  • Organising diabetes screenings in local communities
  • Working with Lloyds Pharmacy, Diabetes UK and the Diabetes Society of Ireland
  • Distributing leaflets detailing risk symptoms and how to live with diabetes
  • With the assistance of the Diabetes Society of Ireland, at the annual Republic of Ireland National Ploughing Championships, a team of Lions members and qualified nurses test around 5,000 people to identify early symptoms.

For further information on our diabetes projects, contact Martin Morgan, Lions Diabetes Officer via email or our own Lion Pam Oliver of the Sunderland Lions Club. Click here for more details.
