May 9 was a red-letter day for Diabetics. The Health Care Ministry, together with Kagawad Sally Jane Uy of Dasmarinas Village, brought the experts of the Diabetic Care Center of Makati Medical Center to our parish.

Fr. Baltazar Obico, OFM gave an inspiring opening prayer at 8:30 am, followed with a talk by Dr. Myl Cabangon, MD on Diabetes 101 debunking myths about the disease. Immediately after, Ivy Ramallosa, a dietician, gave an informative talk on Prevention and Management of Diabetes. The third speaker was Ma. Rosa Vilma Torda, a registered nurse who talked on the proper care of the Diabetic Foot. Simultaneously, on the opposite side of the Parish Center there were medical technologists and nurses who conducted free FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar) Testing.

Just before the seminar ended, Mr. Julian Nair, country manager of B. Braun Medical Supplies distributed Free Glucometers to all attendees. Interested parties who want to know more about Diabetes may call 8888-999 Loc. 3223/24.
