Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 11 luglio 2018

Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) (Insulet or the Company), the global leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod® Insulin Management System (Omnipod System), today announced it has entered into a partnership with the European Region of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF Europe) to collaborate on regional advocacy activities. This partnership provides broader access for Insulet to more closely engage with the European diabetes community.“We are delighted to partner with IDF Europe, which represents 71 national diabetes organizations in 46 countries across Europe,” said DJ Cass, General Manager, Insulet Europe. “Through its advocacy work, IDF Europe’s mission is to improve the health outcomes of its 570,000 members and we look forward to working more closely with them through this powerful collaboration starting with the Youth Leadership Camp in the Czech Republic.” The Youth Leadership Camp is an annual event organized by IDF Europe to provide a unique experience for young people with diabetes to learn skills to become ambassadors for change, while sharing knowledge and interacting with their peers from multiple countries. The 8th edition of the IDF Europe Youth Leadership Camp is taking place in the Czech Republic, July 8-14, 2018.“There are one million people living with Type 1 Diabetes in Europe and IDF welcomes the support of key industry partners, such as Insulet, so we can work together to advocate for improved diabetes care,” said Prof. Dr. Sehnaz Karadeniz, Chair, IDF Europe Region. “The corporate panel at our Youth Leadership Camp is always well received by participants and we look forward to another interactive session this year. IDF Europe values the essential role youths play in raising diabetes awareness as they represent the voices of the future and we encourage them to play an active role advocating for change.” Insulet’s partnership with IDF Europe will also include joint activities for World Diabetes Day on November 14, 2018 and several additional advocacy activities throughout the year to increase recognition for the diabetes community and to support policy change.

The Vatican’s outlook on Europe: from firm encouragement to exacting support

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 giugno 2015

vaticanoThe overwhelming “yes” voiced during the referendum on same-sex marriage in Ireland, a country with a strong Catholic tradition, is viewed within the Church as a defeat. The Vatican in particular finds itself swimming against a growing current that has overtaken its historic western strongholds.This Policy paper by Sébastien Maillard states that relations are changing between a largely secularised Europe and a less Euro-centric Catholic Church under the pontificate of the first pope from the Southern Hemisphere. The Holy See’s expectations remain nonetheless high with regard to a continent called on to serve, to use the expression of Pope Francis in Strasbourg, as a “precious point of reference for all humanity”. Yet the long-standing favoured relationship with Europe is giving way to a more distant attachment to Brussels, subject to real vigilance.Vatican diplomacy was, however, a loyal supporter of European construction. It backed the first treaties under Pius XII (ECSC, EDC, Treaties of Rome) and anticipated its enlargement under John Paul II. Its constant concern – on which it was insistent during the negotiations of the Constitutional Treaty – was to assert the Christian basis without which Europe is not viable, according to the Church. Today, the Church intends to foster its dialogue with European institutions and become a facilitator so that all Europeans of the continent may live together, beyond the EU.Highlighting the value of peaceful coexistence between different peoples and religions forms the basis of Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to Sarajevo on June 6. This trip to a city ravaged by history will mark his second in the Balkans, after Tirana (Albania) in September 2014. He sends a new message against the rise of extremisms in the rest of Europe as well as a reminder to draw from the lessons of the past – especially those which form the basis of the European project.(photo vatican)
