Because I Can Be Incredibly Annoying

I emailed every major newspaper in my state about World Diabetes Day with a simple message and link to press information.

And I'll do it again tomorrow, and the next day and, well, you get the idea.

Last year, I didn't see anything in Michigan media about World Diabetes Day. Maybe I missed it, but I was looking and didn't see it so that leads me to believe that people not looking had no idea what was going on.

I'm on a mission!

You can help. Send emails to

Pat Anstett, Medical writer, panstett@freepress.com
Kim Kozlowski, Health & Social Services, kkozlowski@detnews.com

or send an email to your local paper. Most newspapers have links on their websites to submit news tips or press release information.

A sample of the email I sent is in the comments.

World Diabetes Day 2008 is fast approaching. November 14 was chosen as World Diabetes Day in honor of Frederick Banting, who, along with Charles Best, discovered insulin in 1921. Every 10 seconds someone dies from Diabetes.

Please consider visiting http://www.worlddiabetesday.org/media for media information about the annual event and help bring diabetes to light.

thank you
