JCI Curepipe Health Campaign: Diabetes Awareness – “ Le Diabetes – Qu’en savez vous?”

September 21, 2012

The JCI  Curepipe Health Campaign team would like to invite you to a Diabetes Awareness Event themed “ Le Diabetes – Qu’en savez vous” on Saturday 22nd September 2012. This event will be held in two parts.

 11.00 – 12.30 – Presentation on Type 1 Diabetes by T1Diams at Cité Malherbes Social Centre, Curepipe

(Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed among kids, teenagers and young adults. Hence this presentation will  particularly aim to raise awareness on Type 1 diabetes among the youngsters of Cité Malherbes)

 13.00 – 14.45 – Presentation on Type 1 & Type 2 Diabetes by T1Diams and Representative of the Ministry of Health at Cité Joachim Social Centre, Curepipe

14.45-15.30 – Free Diabetes Screening by T1Diams, Cité Joachim, Curepipe.

(This session will be open to the inhabitants of Cité Joachim, Curepipe)

 Mauritius ranks third in the world as far as the prevalence of diabetes is concerned. One out of two Mauritians is either diabetic or has already reached the pre-diabetic stage. It is thus necessary to adopt a healthy lifestyle to minimise the risk of contracting the disease.

 This event is a joint initiative with T1Diams and the Ministry of Health.

 We thank you for your usual support and look forward to your presence.
