Message from the President
“The Argentina Diabetes Federation (FAD) as an umbrella organization looks after the interests of people who have diabetes and their environments. In FAD we emphasize through diabetes education ‘to know more and better’ about diabetes, allowing individuals to ‘do’ and ‘make others know’ to alert and reduce the impact of the pandemic on the population.
Being part of IDF, making us know their actions, allows us to be stronger and carry forward the mission that defines us: Transforming information in education and education in prevention.
It is an honor to be part of this international organization and to be recognized by it.”
