Junior doctors contribute to diabetes fight


Junior doctors at Milton Cato Memorial Hospital made their contribution to community health education on May 27, 2010, when they presented some facts about diabetes to persons attending the Kingstown District Clinic.{{more}}

Information regarding types, signs, symptoms, treatment and complications associated with diabetes was shared with the public. Pamphlets and a poster displaying facts about diabetes were some of the tools used in the presentation.

The presentation was well received and raised a number of questions from the diabetics who were in attendance.

Vice President of the Junior Doctors Association, Dr. Shakel Henson, emphasized that the quality of life of a diabetic is dependent on how the individual manages his/her condition.

Although there is no cure for diabetes it can be controlled.
