In February 2015 we are launching competition called “My new page”.
The theme is life stories of real people with diabetes, who have faced
the diagnosis for the first time, experienced this difficult moment in
their own way and are ready to share their experience.
Facing serious diagnosis people often become embarrassed to new
circumstances. It is difficult to keep a positive attitude and find the
strength to fight the disease. But positive attitude is the key to
overcome any problems. An example of another person, who has gone
through similar trials and despite the diagnosis is able to live high
quality life and achieve success, sometimes helps to overcome the
GEROPHARM, Group of Companies, pays special attention to outreach
activities, considering them as one of the most important preventive
measures to stop the incidence rate of a disease. Each year the company
implements social projects aimed at informing the public about
preventive measures for socially significant diseases, such as diabetes,
glaucoma, neurological diseases in children and adults. These projects
are also aimed at support and socialization of people with these
diseases. We have already completed a number of projects, such as:
article competition for journalists “Fight Diabetes Together” on the
subject of diabetes; photo project “Faces of Diabetes”, which has become
a new tool to attract attention to this disease and symbol of diabetes
days; international competition “Diabetes. Shots of my active life”
which has brought together dozens of people from different cities of
Russia and CIS countries. And now we continue this initiative.
This year, based on experience from previous projects which became
very much in demand by society, GEROPHARM initiated a new project called
“My new page” addressing to the problems of diabetes.
Competition for an informative and positive story about the role of
diabetes diagnosis in your life will be held between February and April
2015. What helped you to accept the new reality? What event or episode
of your life helped you to open a new page and write your own story of
success? What is the most prominent achievement you are proud of?
Following the results of the competition, best stories will be included
in the book “My New Page” and its authors will receive valuable gifts.
We invite you to join the project and share your positive stories that
will become an example for many people and help them to believe in
themselves and their strength. You can send your stories to the project
initiators: Ekaterina Artemyeva, Head of PR Department of
GEROPHARM Group (Ekaterina.Artemyeva@geropharm.com) or PR Manager Vera Eremeeva (Vera.Eremeeva@geropharm.com).

We believe that this life experience of new characters will help thousands of people to look at their diagnosis in a new way, to believe in themselves and to understand that it is never too late to open a new page in life.
