Word Diabetes Day

This year the World Diabetes Day is celebrated under the motto “Be careful with diabetes” as regards the vision` problems that this disease may cause.

In this context, and motivated by the importance of educating our members on the issue of health, the British Hospital organized the following activities:

>>4:30pm: adolescents who are being treated by the diabetes team will be invited to an educational group activity called "Carbohydrates´ Control”.

>>6:30 pm.: aimed at our hospital members, will be carried out the workshop on “Control, detection and diabetes` risks, and the eye condition of the diabetic patient”. The workshop will be addressed by Drs. Silvia García (diabetologist) and Magdalena Fornella (ophthalmologist) and the following issues will be discussed:

 Diabetes influence, control and detection:
-Risks (myths and realities)
-Eye disease of the diabetic patient.

At the end of the workshop we will be sharing a healthy afternoon snack to then replicate at home.
