Denmark: when diabetes runs in the family

DenmarkFor a second year in a row, the Danish Diabetes Association focused its WDD campaign on the fact that people can inherit from type 2 diabetes.

Entitled “Does diabetes run in your family?”, the campaign aims at raising awareness of the increased risk of developing diabetes when someone has family members already living with this condition.

The aim of the campaign was also to encourage people at risk to take blood glucose tests. Part of the association’s efforts looked at promoting their online “Know you risk” tool, which received more than 18,000 visitors around 14 November.

In addition, awareness-raising events were held across the country, getting high press coverage and visibility.

Volunteers also helped in working with local officials to make sure key public buildings and monuments were lit in blue to mark WDD.
