DOPPSI strived to help people with diabetes during the pandemic
UK charity worked hard to help people living with diabetes throughout the pandemic
A UK charity which aspires to educate people from all walks of life about diabetes prevention will be exhibiting at the Diabetes Professional Care conference.
The Diabetes Outreach Prevention Programmes International (DOPPSI) is dedicated to providing education, early diagnosis and access to treatment to people living with diabetes in the UK and across the world.
During the pandemic, its volunteers used their annual leave to continue their outreach work.
DOPPSI CEO Anna Vanderpuye said: “During Covid 19, DOPPSI’s volunteers did not stay home – we were out in the markets and other public places helping people with diabetes.
“We were happy to give up our time to provide people with blood glucose monitors and helped to educate them on how to successfully manage the care of their diabetes during those difficult times.
“Our volunteers in other parts of the world also provided resources to disconnected people, who make up over 90 per cent of the population in some of the communities where we operate.
“We do this work willingly and always aim to continue with this good work, in good times and bad times.”
You will be able to find DOPPSI at Stand A22 in Olympia National Stand at the Diabetes Professional Care conference.
The event will take place from 16 to 17 November at London, Olympia.
