Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to convince European policymakers to enact policies that will encourage diabetes prevention in Europe. I want to see more funding being allocated to education surround diabetes, its prevention and treatment. I want to see more research into the links between diabetes and Covid-19.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to create a world that is better informed about the dangers that non-communicable diseases pose to our health, our economies and our societies. I want to create a healthier and happier society.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by people currently living with diabetes, health care workers who treat patients with diabetes and future generations.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Improvements in the quality of life of those living with diabetes
Reduced rates of diabetes in the future
Improvements in the working conditions of healthcare workers
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
When European policymakers pass laws and allocate funding to diabetes prevention and treatment.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
