World Diabetes Day
Today, Sunday 14th November is World Diabetes Day ???? this date was picked as it’s also Sir Frederick Banting’s birthday - the medical scientist who discovered insulin along with Charles Best. Our brilliant Clinical Lead Priyanka has created this wonderful display, as well as delivering a presentation on the basics of Diabetes, the significance of World Diabetes Day, the history of Diabetes, and the journey of insulin. The staff and residents painted their nails blue to help raise awareness of Diabetes. Our Diabetes Champions for this year are Priyanka and Annmaria. They have both attended the Diabetes training program and disseminated information back to the staff at Highwell.
