Digg and help prevent diabetes

Reaching a billion people around the world with the diabetes prevention and care message is the International Diabetes Federation’s goal. Our goal is a little more modest (like our budget). But if you digg our diabetes story in ‘Food for Thought’ this month you can help spread the word by putting diabetes on ‘Digg’s’ front page.


What’s digg? It is a community-based news website. Stories are submitted by users (any one of you), and then promoted to the front page through a user-based ranking system. When a story receives enough “diggs” it is promoted to the front page where it reaches many thousands of people. So digg and help someone turn back the clock. Here’s what you do:
  1. Click on the ‘digg this story’ button at the top of the reducing diabetes risk story.
  2. Register (if you haven’t already) – to make your digg count.
