TechnoHealth Student Club of our University set up a “Diabetes Week Awareness Stand” on November 14, 2022 in Cevizli Campus to raise awareness about diabetes.
Carried out in line with the sustainable development goal of ensuring healthy lives for all at all ages, the activities aimed to contribute to the sub-goal of reducing by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment by 2030. Through the stand, our students and academic and administrative staff were provided with information to raise awareness about diabetes and to reduce diabetes-related mortality rates. Brochures were also distributed including information about the disease to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Also, the importance of providing patients with ease of access to healthcare professionals by using a multidisciplinary approach in diabetes treatment was emphasized.
