Världsdiabetesdagen 2017

Världsdiabetesdagen 2017

During the World Diabetes Day on November 5 in Malmö, Sweden, Kerstin Hjelt represented the Hjelt Diabetes Foundation by sharing information about the Foundation’s aim to support diabetes researchers in Lund and Geneva. The World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. In addition to the exhibition, visitors came to listen to lectures on current research. The theme for WDD 2017 is Women and Diabetes.
