Boston Scientific Announces Sponsorship of World Diabetes Day Campaign 2009
Date:11/10/2009

general public -- to understand diabetes and take control."

Diabetes is a chronic, debilitating disease, which poses severe risks and costs for people with diabetes, their families and the health care community. The IDF estimates that more than 246 million people worldwide have diabetes, and this number is expected to rise to 380 million within 20 years. The burden on health care systems is substantial, with estimated costs of diabetes-related complications accounting for 5 - 10 percent of total global health care spending. The United Nations has recognized diabetes as a global threat -- the first time for a non-infectious disease.

Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death and disability in diabetic patients, accounting for some 50 percent of all diabetes fatalities. People with diabetes and coronary artery disease often have poorer outcomes after revascularization procedures (stenting, angioplasty) due to the increased likelihood of blockage due to plaque formation in small, difficult-to-reach vessels.

As part of its support, Boston Scientific will once again participate in the IDF World Diabetes Day Monument Challenge by temporarily illuminating its corporate headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts and changing the color of its Internet homepage to blue in recognition of World Diabetes Day on November 14.

Boston Scientific will further support World Diabetes Day with activities at company facilities around the world, including free diabetes screenings for employees and Lunch and Learn Sessions.

The IDF has recognized Boston Scientific's social media initiatives on its World Diabetes Day website. More information can be found directly at the following Twitter, Facebook and YouTube links:
