There’s an International Footcare Foundation conference taking place in Cape Town in July this year – with a special emphasis on diabetes. Find out all about it at http://internationalfootcarefoundation.com/
The Conference will undertake pre-diabetic screening of 10,000 people with a family history of diabetes or a BMI greater than 25-28. Eye tests and blood tests will be undertaken off site by the appointed opticians and Pathcare depots. Foot screening will be undertaken by medical students, student podiatrists and allied medical professionals. 3000 people will be screened on each day and 1000 on the last day. Workshops will be held with the people being screened and life coaching will be given. Medical seminars will be held and issues relating to diabetes will be addressed by international and local speakers. Nutritional, life coaching and fitness workshops will also be held over the 4 days.
