A Diabetes awareness programme which involves organizing awareness sessions for the society at large. Our team visits schools, corporate companies, universities, colleges, NGOs, housing societies, and other such social institutions to make them aware of basics of Diabetes, particularly Type 1 Diabetes.

A child with any medical condition needs a very strong support system to flourish and grow. In case of school going kids with T1D, if their teachers and friends are not aware about the symptoms, it becomes very difficult to manage the complications. Moreover, with lot of stigma and fear in the society about diabetes, seemingly simple tasks like taking a break to administer insulin, to take snacks or going to the washroom frequently also becomes overwhelming for the kids. DTour campaign by diabesties gives me a hope that together we can create awareness about diabetes in a way that no kid will have to seek acceptance from his/her friends for being different, just for being diabetic.

"It's a really important initiative. There are too many myths around T1D. Diabesties is doing great job by spreading awareness and busting these myths.
