World Diabetes Day, November 14. 2019 at the Town square Fountain at 5pm.
World Diabetes Day — celebrated every year on November 14 — was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Foundation. Diabetes is a chronic disease where the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin. It can also lead to other chronic conditions like kidney failure and heart attacks, hence the push to draw attention to an illness with increasing numbers worldwide. Curious as to why we celebrate this important day on November 14 specifically? This date was picked because it’s the birthday of Frederick Banting, who discovered insulin in 1922. So join us, and help raise awareness of this important condition.
