Diabetes Awareness Session at Levon and Sophia Hagopian College

On April 15, 2013, DiaLeb held a diabetes awareness session at Levon and Sophia Hagopian College. Over 120 students from grades 9-11 attended the session which began with an overview about DiaLeb and its activities, presented by Dr. Jackie Maalouf, president of DiaLeb. Ms. Layal Hanna, our awareness program coordinator/head nutritionist, gave general recommendations about what diabetes is, the different types, and how it is prevented through nutrition and physical activity, and also provided the students with some tips to begin leading a healthier lifestyle. In closing the session, one blood glucose meter sponsored by Roche/Accuchek was given to the infirmary of the school.
