Every three minutes, another Canadian is diagnosed with diabetes. CSEM is asking its members to support Diabetes 360°. We are proud to join Diabetes Canada in the call for a national strategy to tackle the diabetes epidemic. Call on your MP to support the Diabetes 360° campaign.
Diabetes 360˚ is an evidence-based action plan spearheaded by Diabetes Canada in collaboration with more than 100 expert stakeholders from across Canada, representing academia, health-care, government, NGOs and private industry.
Along with CSEM and other stakeholders, Diabetes Canada is asking the Government of Canada to dedicate $150 million over seven years for a national partnership to implement Diabetes 360˚. In just 10 years, this strategy can save the health-care system and Canadian economy more than $36 billion while preventing the development of more than one million cases of type 2 diabetes.
Urge your MP to support the strategy by sending them an email using Diabetes Canada’s quick and easy online tool at diabetes.ca/strategy. Share with your colleagues and networks and encourage them to do the same.
Canada is one of the few developed countries with no diabetes strategy in place to help all levels of government work together. Join @DiabetesCanada and @CSEM_SCEM in calling on our MPs to support the Diabetes 360° strategy. #Diabetes360 #cdnpoli #yourbudget http://diabetes.ca/strategy?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=socialpost&utm_campaign=Diabetes360&utm_content=dayofactionthreetext
