UN defined diabetes as “a worldwide healthcare emergency”. More and more people suffer from this terrible disease. In Italy 3 million people are aware of their condition but one million of them are not.
It is crucial to know if a form of diabetes has developed. For this reason medical screenings are essential in order to fight against it on time.
The delegation of Varese, in collaboration with Lions Club Solbiate Arno Valle Arno, Red Cross in Gallarate and the municipality, launched a free medical screening campaign in Albizzate. After the tests, citizens had the chance to have breakfast, which was kindly offered by the local Proloco and local AVIS.
Next screening will be on April, 22nd 2018 in Sumirago.
