Many cases of Diabetes and Hypertension are seen regularly in the community surrounding Project Kodaikanal in India. The staff at Project Kodaikanal thought a great course of prevention and maintenance would be to focus on diabetes as a topic for health education. The staff focused our discussion on adopting a healthy lifestyle, which includes maintaining a diabetic diet, regular exercise, consistent monitoring of blood sugar, and sticking to medication to keep the disease under control. Project Kodaikanal’s health education program, Diabetes Miletus: Preventing Complications, was very successful and reached 100 participants! Project Kodaikanal would like to thank Tatiana Arreglado for her hard work at the clinic site in November and December!
