The Chatsworth Diabetes Action Group has once again embarked on a project to commemorate World Diabetes Day by organizing a diabetes education and screening day in Chatsworth this Saturday, the 12th of November 2011. The event will operate from the Chatsworth Circus Site, where there will also be tents and stands for blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol screening, general education, as well as diabetic foot and eye screening. It is hoped that SABC-TV will once again record and broadcast highlights from this event.
This is an annual event and in 2009, the World Diabetes Day event in Chatsworth was the most successful one in the country, and featured prominently in the news media, including SABC-TV.
If you’re in the Durban area, please join us for this educational day!
