Lions Clubs International has developed a wide array of club and community resources for Lions who want to get involved with diabetes projects. All diabetes publications can be downloaded from the website or ordered from the Service Activities Division for a nominal cost. See the diabetes materials order form for details.
The Diabetes Awareness and Action program brochure is an informational handout for Lions that encourages them to join the fight against diabetes. It provides a brief overview of diabetes and various ways Lions can help make a difference in their communities. It is an ideal handout at club or district meetings and Lions conventions.
