Each year World Diabetes Day takes place on 14 November-the birthday of the man who co-discovered insulin, Frederick Banting. Banting discovered insulin in 1922, alongside Charles Best.
WDD is marked all around the world in many different ways (conferences, meetings, lectures, campaigns and media programmes etc.) in order to raise awareness of diabetes.
This year the UK's leading diabetes charity, Diabetes UK, is running a fun initiative to get people talking, sharing and feeling supported...by encouraging people to paint their nails blue (the colour associated with WDD).
Find out more about WDD how to get involved on the Diabetes UK website https://www.diabetes.org.uk/get_involved/world-diabetes-day
