'Every 10 Seconds...' Unite for Diabetes campaign

"Every 10 seconds...' is a short film exploring the devastating impact of the global diabetes epidemic. Produced by award-winning Danish company ’FilmSolutions’ on behalf of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Diabetes Foundation (WDF), this seven-minute movie explains why the global diabetes community is joining forces to campaign for a United Nations Resolution.

I came across this video today at Google Video. Warning--a bit depressing. It sparked my interest in this UN Resolution. Perhaps someone has heard of this before?

Yep. Definitely heard of this. Heard about this way before the UNR was even the UNR.... A friend from my childhood diabetes camp is Clare Rosenfeld, and she is the one who came up with the idea.

I'll be interviewing her for my website, Diabetes Teen Talk, and I will post a link to it from my blog when it goes up. Expect it in November for National Diabetes Month.
