This year’s World Diabetes Day theme is “Eyes on Diabetes.” According to the International Federation of Diabetes, one in two adults with diabetes is undiagnosed. A diabetes screening can identify asymptomatic individuals who may have diabetes but don’t know it. Lions, this November 14 conduct a diabetes screening in your community! Help raise awareness about diabetes, and give community members the resources and information they need to lead healthier lives. Learn how to organize a diabetes screening.
A #SquadGoal is what you’d like your group of friends to be or accomplish. To celebrate International Leo Day on December 5, encourage your local Leos to get creative and share their #SquadGoals through video. How do their goals align with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which were adopted by world leaders to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change? The video submission deadline is November 1, 2016. Find more information on how to enter the contest.
