Ascensia art gallery World Diabetes day 2018 the family

NEWS

In support of World Diabetes Day 2018 Ascensia has gathered

together an art and video gallery of families affected by diabetes.

Family-wide support

The Ascensia Diabetes

Care launched their

campaign for World

Diabetes Day 2018 to

celebrate the important

role of families for people with diabetes

by publishing 38 online artworks that

tell the stories of how families support,

inspire and impact people with diabetes

and the management of their condition.

Through these artworks, Ascensia aims

to highlight the critical role families play

in discovering, preventing and managing

diabetes, amplifying the messages of the

official theme for World Diabetes Day.

The Family and Diabetes was

chosen by the International Diabetes

Federation (IDF) as the 2018-2019

theme for World Diabetes Day. The aim

is to raise awareness of the impact of

diabetes on the family and promote the

central role they play in the management,

care, prevention and awareness of this

condition. To help the IDF specifically

highlight the essential role of families in

diabetes management, Ascensia asked

people across the world to submit their

family portraits and share stories of

how they support family members with

diabetes. Professional artists have then

added line drawings to digital versions of

these photos to embelish these already

inspirational stories.

Michael Kloss, President and CEO

of Ascensia Diabetes Care said: "The

support families provide is of paramount

importance for people with diabetes. We

are thrilled to provide our backing for this

year's World Diabetes Day theme, which

highlights the critical role of families in

discovering, preventing and managing

astle family video

diabetes. As a company that only focuses

on diabetes, we believe it is important to

highlight the enormous support provided

by the families of people with diabetes

and how they are rising to meet these

challenges daily. It is clear from the stories

that we have seen, just how important

families are for people with diabetes at all

stages of their condition. They are helping

them to lead healthier lives, providing

support to complete the tasks necessary

to manage their diabetes each day and

are ensuring that it has the minimum

impact on their lives. Family members

provide a crucial, unshakeable support

network to celebrate the positives and

provide emotional support when things

are difficult. We hope that the artworks

of these inspirational families will help to

raise awareness of diabetes globally on

this critical awareness day."

Spanning 30 countries, the

digital gallery is available at
