Know your risk!

On 3 November 2015 we launched our inaugural Diabetes Action Month campaign. New Zealand is facing a diabetes epidemic and Diabetes NZ aims to tackle this growing problem by compelling the nation to be more aware of their risk factors for diabetes; and to take action for a healthier New Zealand.

Throughout the month of November, the Mobile Diabetes Awareness Van will be embarking on a roadshow across New Zealand, engaging with Kiwis nationwide to raise awareness of diabetes and to stress the importance of knowing the risk factors associated with the condition.

We are all meant to move so let’s get moving! Mark the 28th November 2015 in your diaries for a day of FREE fun, physical activities with nearly 40 recreational facilities and gyms throughout New Zealand hosting a Fitbit MoveMeant Day. Check out the schedule of events at the link below but if you can’t find something happening in your town, grab your friends and colleagues and get moving yourselves – organise a fun run, a swim, a game of touch rugby, softball or golf or just take a walk and help kick start our nation into getting more active every day.
