Do You Have an Inspiring Diabetes Story to Tell or Vision to Share? Send It to the “Inspired by Diabetes” Competition


By: dhtest

“Inspired by Diabetes” is a friendly competition that not only helps people with diabetes gain inspiration from each other, but also generates donations to diabetes treatment centers in developing countries.

Co-sponsored by Eli Lilly & Company, the International Diabetes Federation’s Unite for Diabetes Initiative, and the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes, “Inspired by Diabetes” asks people to submit their stories about living with diabetes in essays, poems, photographs, or art.  

For each entry, Lilly & Company will donate money to the IDF’s “Life for a Child” program, which provides insulin and diabetes supplies to children in 17 countries.  

The deadline for the contest is March 31, 2009, and entry is free.
