Diabetes & Healthy Living Campaigns

    The Diabetes & Healthy Living Campaign was launched in August 2005. It aims to raise awareness of a healthy lifestyle in the prevention and care of diabetes by encouraging pro-active rather than reactive health promotion. The campaign also includes training and motivating pharmacy students to move towards multi-disciplinary collaboration in planning events and campaigns while bringing awareness to a globally significant issue. We want to increase awareness amongst both healthcare professionals and the public in the prevention and care of this chronic disease.

    We focus on the Diabetes Awareness Campaign around the time of the World Diabetes Day (November 14) and on the Healthy Living Awareness Campaign around April.
