By conducting such activities we hope to make people aware about the disease and to improve the lives of all people affected by it.”

One of the key endeavours of the workshops is to inform diabetic patients regarding the effects of extreme fasting and educate them on effective diet plans and physical activities to keep in mind during the festive season.
