OLYMPIC MEDALIST PRISCILLA LOPES-SCHLIEP JOINS CAMPAIGN IN SUPPORT OF WORLD DIABETES DAY
TORONTO, Nov. 9 /CNW/ - Saturday, November 14 is World Diabetes Day, and Priscilla Lopes-Schliep, Canada's 100-meter hurdles Olympic star and World Silver medalist, is joining forces with MedTagger.com to advocate for trusted, reliable information related to the world's fourth-leading cause of death.
The campaign's slogan is "Tag you're it! Take action in support of World Diabetes Day."
Lopes-Schliep speaks from the heart on the issue of diabetes as several of her family members have the disease. She also has a genetic condition called Lipodystrophy that can lead to diabetes.
Call to action
Priscilla is calling on all Canadians touched by diabetes to take a single action to mark World Diabetes Day this year: Register at MedTagger.com and tag at least one document related to diabetes they consider important or useful for others.
Each tagged document will result in a donation of $1.00 to diabetes education in Canada by MedTagger.com.
MedTagger.com is the first online service of its kind to combine the power of community knowledge with advanced search technology to deliver trusted, relevant diabetes-related information to the global diabetes community.
