World Diabetes Day Blue Circle Selfie App

Looking for a quick and easy way to raise diabetes awareness for World Diabetes Day on November 14? Then you’ll want to check out the free World Diabetes Day Blue Circle Selfie App from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF).

According to IDF, “we need to increase awareness of the blue circle as the global symbol for diabetes, as it still means nothing to many people!” The app allows users to take a self-portrait (or group photograph) featuring the iconic symbol.

Links and QR codes for downloading the app, as well as a gallery of photos taken using the app, are available on the IDF website[1].
