" SOP Diabetes Awareness Campaign "
World Diabetes Day is the primary global awareness campaign focusing on diabetes mellitus and is held on November 14 each year. The School of Pharmacy at Beirut Campus organized a diabetes awareness campaign on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 to draw attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world. The professional communications students and pharmacy club were educating LIU students and faculty about their risk of developing diabetes and give them tips to reduce their risks. First, a risk assessment sheet was given to each participant in order to calculate his/her risk of diabetes. Random blood glucose, blood pressure, weight, and height were measured and the risk was calculated. Patients with moderate and high risk were given a diet plan by the health club members to help reduce weight and emphasize on importance of exercise, and following healthy life style. At the end, all faculty and students were blue cloves and took common photo.
