On the occasion of diabetes day, the NIDE organized an event for screening and informing about diabetes and its complications for patients’ families and employees of the Children’s Cancer Hospital 57357,.
During the event which took place on Sunday October 17, 2021, from10 am to 3 pm , diabetes screening was carried out for more than 600 of patients’ families and 57357 staff, for early detection and directing diabetes patients to receive treatment in the institute. Lectures were held about causes and treatment of diabetes where a team of experts and consultants provided information and answers to enquiries besides directing families and employees to checkup sites which are offered by Evafarma.
The day was organized under the patronage of the Hospitals’ Educational Authority, under the slogan “your health matters, take the test and get reassured”, and in attendance and supervision of Dr. Ehab Nabil Hanna the institute’s dean. The event was brought together by Dr. Sherif Abdel Aal, Head of motherhood and childhood committee at the Rotary club and Dr. Aya Nassar, the committee coordinator. A group of diabetes physicians and experts in addition to the governor of Rotary region 2451 attended the event.
Organizing that day falls within our commitment to the provision of health awareness as part of the comprehensive care we offer to our patients and their families, especially as mothers may be more exposed to diabetes, and may neglect its treatment because of psychological pressures resulting from the sickness of their loved ones.
It is known that awareness plays a big role in avoiding diabetes and its complications: following a healthy diet, practicing exercises, staying away of tension and regularly taking treatment and testing sugar levels.
