To mark World Diabetes Day, the Faroese Diabetes Association organised a meeting about type 2 diabetes and the latest forms of treatment, which was presented by a specialist doctor from the outpatient clinic at the national hospital. This highly interactive meeting, with many exchanges, questions, and answers, was held in a pleasant setting at a boat-museum and attended by about 50 people.
The Tower in the church in Hoyvík, Torshavn, was also illuminated with a blue light on World Diabetes Day as it has been for the past five years.
In November, the board of the Faroese Diabetes Association also met with the new Minister of Health, Kaj Leo Holm Johannesen. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the Minister about the association’s work and to offer help and expertise with regard to continuing to maintain good conditions for people with diabetes in the Faroe Islands.
