Proud Official Partner of World Diabetes Day since 2008
Boston Scientific is proud to be an official partner of World Diabetes Day, which takes place each year on November 14th. World Diabetes Day is a worldwide campaign led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), a collaborative alliance of over 220 diabetes associations in more than 160 countries.
Major objectives of the campaign include:
- Reaching 1 billion people worldwide with care and prevention messages, including information about the causes, symptoms, complications and treatment of Diabetes.
- Promoting Diabetes prevention and care among healthcare professionals through education materials and programs.
In recognition of our support, Boston Scientific once again will participate in the IDF World Diabetes Day Monument Challenge by temporarily illuminating in blue our corporate headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts and our Maple Grove, Minnesota facility.
Across the globe, Boston Scientific supports employee driven activities to promote World Diabetes Day, including free diabetes screenings for employees, educational sessions and fundraisers.
