On the occasion of World Diabetes Day, Makhzoumi Foundation, in collaboration with the Nutrition School of the Lebanese American University, organized an awareness campaign in Spinneys – Jinnah for preliminary Blood Glucose tests.
An estimate number of 500 participants have undergone the screening test. “This year’s theme of the World Diabetes Day campaign is Women and Diabetes,” said Sandra Karnabi, Dietetic Internship Coordinator at LAU. “It’s worth mentioning that this disease is one of the nine leading causes of death among women worldwide.”
After a fruitful collaboration, in its second year between the Lebanese American University and Makhzoumi Foundation, the latter is opening its doors to provide the necessary quality health care through its distinguished medical team and advanced technologies, as well as offering affordable prices to all segments of society.
It is worth noting that the University in cooperation with the Foundation sends its students for an internship at the Health Care Center at Makhzoumi Foundation headquarter in Mazraa so that the students will be able to connect their academic experience with the professional work arena in the future.
