[Job, Brussels] IDF @IntDiabetesFed, #Diabetes Education & Health Systems Mgr, ???, clos 30 March 2012 #healthcomms #publichealth jobs

This is more to do with healthcomms / public health than scicomm but I have sneaked it in nonetheless 🙂
An NCD is a non-communicable disease by the way.

I actually found this on the Diabetes UK website (we're a member of the IDF as are LOADS of other diabetes charities worldwide). First bit of text is lifted from the IDF's website, second bit is lifted from ours – they looked slightly different so thought it best to capture everything.

Good luck, and give me a shout if you need to know anything about diabetes… jo.brodie AT gmail.com or @JoBrodie (please don't reply to @ScicommJobs as it's an automated feed and not monitored, ta).
