Diabetes Week 2009: Theme

Act early. Improve lives
In Diabetes UK's 75th anniversary year, the theme of Diabetes Week 2009 is 'Act early. Improve lives'.

We've decided this year to focus on the importance of early action - early action to prevent complications for those with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and early identification and diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes.

By getting involved in the week's activities you can help make people realise by acting early, lives can be improved for everyone affected by diabetes - including people with diabetes as well as their friends, family and carers.

This has never been more important than in this, our 75th anniversary year.
