IDF World Diabetes Congress 2013, Words for Diabetes

Last week from 2 – 6 December 2013 10,000 people joined as one in Melbourne Australia for the International Diabetes Federation World Congress. Diabetes Counselling Online spoke to thousands of people, we laughed, cried, learnt, shared our work and connected. We asked people to share their words for diabetes.People from all over the world, from different countries with different languages. Sometimes pictures speak louder than words. Here they are. If you watch just one video from the World Congress – watch this one. It might just change your life.  It is best watched on a computer or tablet device so you can read the words. And please share!
