SMHC celebrates World Diabetes Day

SMHC celebrated World Diabetes Day. Participants visited information booths, attended conferences and much more. Catherine Gauvin, Head Nurse ICU, CCU, Med and Cardiology explained that: "St. Mary’s is sensitive to the cause of diabetes. This day served to increase our community awareness of diabetes and allowed our nurses to stay up to date with the developments in this field.”

Launched in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and supported by the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Diabetes Day campaign is a response to the escalating incidence of diabetes around the world. Visit the IDF website for more information:
