World Diabetes Day is November 14th

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM).  November 14, 2021 celebrated the 100th anniversary of the revolutionary and lifesaving discovery of insulin.

November 14th celebrates Sir Frederick Banting who was a Canadian medical scientist who co-discovered insulin.

The symbol for World Diabetes Day is a blue circle signifying the sky and the circle is the symbol for unity.

Diabetes Grey Bruce celebrates NDAM by increasing awareness about diabetes at Grey Bruce Health Services and in the community.  We are a team of Certified Diabetes Educators RN’s, RD’s, NP and Endrocrinologist who provide one on one, inpatient and group services to help with diabetes education and self-management.  Stephanie Methner one of the Brescia Dietetic Interns developed a timeline of how diabetes nutrition recommendations have changed over the years from 1914 to present day, it is a very interesting read, please see below…
