As one person is diagnosed with diabetes every three minutes, faster than ever before, according to the charity Diabetes UK, the pharmaceutical company MSD is trying to build a ‘face of diabetes’ mosaic to highlight the impact of type 2 diabetes on patients.

People with diabetes are being asked to send photographs or images of themselves, or what diabetes means to them, to be used in the mosaic. Boxes have been placed in selected GP surgeries throughout the UK for pictures to be posted alongside any personal thoughts patients may have on living with diabetes.

Images and comments can also be emailed, text or uploaded to the following link: www.facingdiabetes.co.uk or posted to Facing Diabetes, Merck Sharp & Dohme Ltd, Hertford Road, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, EN11 9BU.
