There are many ways you can help as an International Diabetes Youth Ambassador. Here is our latest CALL TO ACTION.
- CWD International Diabetes Youth Ambassadors Clare Rosenfeld (Oregon), Marissa Hitchcock (Ohio), and Sam and Carolyn Billetdeaux (Michigan), have been invited to Copenhagen, Denmark by Maersk Medical, maker of insulin pump infusion supplies, to meet other IDYAs from that country and to learn about how insulin pump infusion sets are made. This will mark the first international meeting of the IDYA. While there, these young people will discuss how diabetes is managed in their own countries, comparing the differences in health care, research and social issues facing young people with the disease. By learning about these issues, the IDYA hope to develop ways to work together to raise awareness about diabetes. Raising awareness will help eliminate issues of discrimination, enlist support for cure research, and ultimately encourage young people to take good care of their health. While there they will also tour the factory where insulin pump infusion sets are made.
- The United Nations has recognized the IDYA Program. See Youth network to help in the fight against diabetes.
