Managing and Preventing diabetes through Awareness and Education

Cohort: 2022-2024

The project focuses on raising awareness of diabetes and its complications. The goal is to provide the public with free health screening and receive expert guidance from healthcare professionals based on their outcomes.   

The screening process will include blood glucose testing, blood pressure measurement, evaluation of BMI (Body Mass Index), and foot care. People will be able to know their readings and learn of possible risk factors. 

A fundraising glow walk will also promote physical activity and raise diabetes awareness. Funds from the walk will be donated to the Antigua and Barbuda Diabetes Association.
