How Well Do Malaysians Know Diabetes?
We organised a social experiment with Malaysians from all walks of life to find out what comes to mind when they ‘Think Diabetes’.
For Your Sweetheart Campaign is a nationwide public awareness and
education campaign organised by
Malaysian Endocrine and Metabolic Society (MEMS)
Malaysian Diabetes Educators Society (MDES)
, supported by Boehringer Ingelheim, to educate the public,
especially those living with diabetes, about the link between
diabetes and heart diseases.
This campaign also aims to highlight the urgent need for those
living with diabetes to take care of their heart health. Patients
and their caregivers must know their increased risks of developing
heart disease. They are encouraged to speak to their doctors or
diabetes educator (DE) to learn how they can protect their heart
and prevent heart disease.
