We are currently working hard on a storybook and toolkit on the theme of Type 2 diabetes and we are doing this with children, their teachers and people who work in public health in Guam. It's a big problem there.
Together with the same team, we developed a poster on Type 2 Diabetes for children with 10 messages for children to learn and share. It has been downloaded many hundreds of times.
We would love your feedback and ideas on this poster which we can then use in the story and the Toolkit.
Please would you take a quick look at our poster here and let us know what you think.
It is two sided with the messages on one side and guidance aon how to use the poster on the reverse side - with a bit more information for educators this side too. Our posters are often printed out on two separate sides and displayed side by side and it's designed to be printed A3 size minimum.
I look forward to hearing from you.
