ADIA joins the events of World Diabetes Day 2017 (13/11/2017)

The Association of Diabetics of Eagles (ADIA), in collaboration with the Department of Health of the City of Águilas, will install tomorrow morning at the Plaza de España an information booth on the occasion of the commemoration of World Diabetes Day.

From the same, the volunteers of this aquiline association will perform free glucose testing and blood pressure measurement to all who come there.

From ADIA also take advantage to inform the importance of developing healthy lifestyle as a good tool to fight against this disease.

Also, last Saturday, the traditional Anda Conmigo was celebrated, a walking tour of the municipality in which nearly fifty people gathered, including the mayor of Águilas, Mari Carmen Moreno, along with other members of the municipal corporation and the president of Adia, Yolanda Gallego.

The goal of this activity, said Gallego, "is to give visibility to diabetes and raise awareness about the importance of physical activity, which, together with good nutrition, is essential in the prevention of diabetes."

The walk ended with a release of paper lanterns and the lighting of the Pava de la Balsa, emblem of this town, in blue.

Also within the program of events promoted by the association, on Friday the New Technologies in Diabetes conference was held by Manuel Romero, endocrinologist at the Rafael Méndez hospital, and the presentation of the inclusive travel project took place;

an initiative that will enable children with diabetes to enjoy school or leisure excursions on equal terms with other school children.

In this sense, the president of ADIA explained that "until the moment when a diabetic child participated in a trip the parents or guardians had to accompany him with the difficulty that this entails, now, thanks to this project, he will be a nurse hired by the Association, with the collaboration of the City Council, which will travel with these children.
