Nestle celebrates World Diabetes Day with educational event

PETALING JAYA - Some 200 participants had a good insight into how to manage and prevent diabetes when Nestle Health Science celebrated the World Diabetes Day in collaboration with Diabetes Malaysia last Saturday.

The jointly organised NUTREN® Together We Take Charge World Diabetes Day took place at Menara Bata, PJ Trade Centre in Petaling Jaya.

During the launch, Nestle Health Science and Diabetes Malaysia renewed their commitment to be a force for change by empowering, and supporting people living with diabetes to take charge of their health and prevent the disease from affecting their quality of life.

Throughout the fun filled morning, participants were taken on a journey of learning and discovery as they mastered all the components to help manage their blood sugar.

They also took part in an energetic zumba workout besides having blood glucose testing and consultation.

While they were taught on healthy eating and exercise, a cooking demo was held much to the delight of the participants by international culinary expert, Chef Wan, who crafted two dishes for people with diabetes.
