Mark the day – 10 November 2013. As diabetes affects 11.3% of Singaporeans, the number of families with one or more members are becoming very high. This year the Diabetes Society of Singapore is going to have an event packed with activities at the Suntec Convention Centre. There are tons of free stuff there:
Free Hba1c test (cost $30)
Free eye photos (cost $30)
Free feet check (cost from $25 at least)
Free consultation with diabetic nurse educators, pharmacists, dieticians (cost from $25 each)
Total free stuff: $160 plus the goodie bag!
In fact since every year the DSS celebrates the World Diabetes Day, you can just get your eyes and feet checked free of charge over there, as they are supposed to be screened yearly as well.
Pravin, a patient with type 1 diabetes will also be there to share his experience. He was diagnosed to have type 1 diabetes at age 7, but had learnt to live with the illness, and is now an engineer. He also runs marathons, climb mountains and volunteers overseas to help other people with diabetes.
So just go to Suntec this Sunday!
