Lions Club of Sydney Indians and the Technocrats Association of Australia organised a Diabetes Risk Awareness talk by Dr Roza Sage from Diabetes NSW on 17 February at Lions Den, North Parramatta.
This was a free community event which more than 50 people attended. Dr Roza Sage’s presentation was informative and at the same time very easy to understand, sending home the message that diabetes is an important health issue for the community, particularly for those from the Asian and Indian sub-continent origin. The talk was followed by a stimulating question and answer session.
Dr Sundar and Dr Reni Sundar from various medical organisations conducted a free testing of blood sugar levels for those present. Lions Club of Sydney Indians have planned similar community events all through the year, said the organisation’s president Dr Rohitas Batta.
