“There are about three million obese Malaysians and the number is increasing”, said Deputy Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya adding that “about five million people have varying degrees of diabetes”.
“Malaysia is not only the country in Southeast Asia with the most number of fat people, we also have the dubious distinction of having the highest number of diabetics in the region”.
All these statistics are based on reported cases, but there are still many undetected ones.
In light of this rampant issue, Mediviron UOA Clinic decided to hold a “Good Bye! Diabetes” Campaign as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.
This is the third venue that we are held the Diabetes Awareness Campaign Roadshow on 7 April 2014 in Wisma UOA II, Kuala Lumpur.
Here are some highlights of the day.
Our campaign ended successfully with smiles on everyone faces. We were very touched by participants thanking us for organizing such a thoughtful campaign. A very big thank you to everyone who participated. We look forward to your support for our future events and please stay tuned for more updates!
