La vie 100 L'insuline. Access to diabetes care

Meeting/Exhibition/Fair Start Date: November 7, 2021
End Date: November 7, 2021
Location: Mauritius

The prevalence of diabetes and pre-diabetes is on the rise with almost a quarter of the population of Mauritius with diabetes. Access to the right information and right care pathways has been a challenge. The Curis Clinic is hosting a globally celebrated event not only to promote awareness of diabetes but also to support education of healthcare professionals thus improving access to better treatment options. Patient empowerment is of paramount importance.

Professor Lindsay Edouard who is a former medical officer with the WHO in Geneva and health adviser with United Nations in New York will be talking about his own experience of living with diabetes and his journey to diabetes reversal. Finally, strategies will be discussed with the aim to implement a multidisciplinary approach to diabetes care.
