"I Can Stop Diabetes" Campaign at ICS

Thursday, February 25, 2016

The Health Office is introducing Health Promotion campaigns for ICS employees.  There will be a number of campaigns throughout the year to provide tips and information to keep employees healthy.

The first campaign was held in September/October:  Blood Pressure (BP) awareness, “Know Your Numbers” campaign.  It was a success!

Currently, the Health Office is engaged in “I can Stop Diabetes” campaign throughout the month of February. The Office provides Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) test, where individuals do not eat or drink anything but water during the eight hours before the test, coming to ICS and have the test done in the morning, before breakfast. A drop of blood will be collected from tip of finger and results will be shared immediately.

Diabetes is a growing epidemic in minority populations. However, type 2 diabetes can be a preventable and controllable disease.
