VDGH - charity football match between a team of diabetologists and a team of parliamentarians

Verband der Diagnostica-Industry (VDGH), the German Association of the Diagnostics Industry, will be collaborating with diabetesDE in celebration of MedTech Week 2018. diabetesDE is the German diabetes patient organisation which has been committed to bettering the lives of people with diabetes since 2009.

On June 12th, VDGH will co-host a charity football match between a team of diabetologists and a team of parliamentarians. FC Diabetologie and FC Bundestag are entering into this friendly competition to raise awareness of diabetes, and the life-changing effect of medical devices have. In particular, VDGH and diabetesDE want to bring the issue of undiagnosed diabetes to the public’s attention, as an estimated one million of Germans have diabetes without knowing it.

During the event, VDGH will showcase self-measuring glucose devices as an example of how people with diabetes can live a more unburdened life thanks to medical technology. Overall, the event will promote a national diabetes strategy which is set to be released soon.
