Diabetes camp
09 Aug

The Diabetes Association of Barbados will be hosting a "Wellness Camp" for one week from Monday August 13th to the 17th, at the Springer Memorial School.

Twenty-five children, between the ages of 6 and 16, are expected to attend this inaugural camp.

The camp will aim to provide solutions in educating children about non-communicable diseases and the inter-relationship with health and disease, diet, physical activity and social factors.

There will be a physical activity session each day and other sessions will include nutrition and food labs, consumerism, dental hygiene, leadership training, a one day farming apprenticeship and tour, a supermarket shopping competition, care for hands and feet, substance abuse and food safety.
