In light of our mission and strategic aim, that is educating and empowering the diabetes community to lead their lives in a more structured manner, a team of incredible volunteers, including professionals and people living with diabetes, have developed a book and an education curriculum for people living with type 1 diabetes. It encompasses a variety of topics about diabetes self management.
We joined hands with Fatima Memorial Hospital (Lahore) to launch our Structured Education for type1 Diabetes Understanding in Pakistan (SETUP) curriculum. The handbook, available in both English and Urdu, has culturally tailored information for local foods and challenges. The handbook will be backed up by workshops to empower people living with type 1 diabetes in 2021.
