African Medical students join fight against diabetes

Monday, November 25, 2013

The students will receive advanced professional know-how through the Merck Capacity Advancement Program to curb the high incidence of diabetes. The program will extend to the rest of African universities in the next few years.

The training program seeks to equip them with skills to avert the diabetes epidemic.

The students who went through the first of a series of trainings last week at University of Nairobi were imparted with knowledge on Diabetes etiology enabling them to evaluate altered glycemia and implement therapeutic solutions. They will also be able to manage diabetic patients with their possible complications and co-morbidities.
