Diabetes Fundraiser

This presentation was made for a fundraising event, to raise funds in advance of the Western Massachusetts JDRF walk. The presentation was designed to play passively in the background of a 250 person dinner and DJ party, so as to raise awareness about diabetes while also encouraging the purchase of raffle tickets.
