Lions and Leos are raising awareness for diabetes, a disease that affects 463 million people worldwide, by completing a variety of short, convenient online activities during October-November. We’re out to log 100,000 total minutes by World Diabetes Day, November 14, and time is on our side!
Diabetes can lead to serious diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves and teeth. In most high-income countries, diabetes is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower limb amputation. It is expected to affect 629 million adults by 2045.
We Have a Plan
Serving in diverse communities all over the world, we see and feel the effects of diabetes and are doing something about it together.
Our Strategic Objective
Reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve quality of life for those diagnosed.
