HEAR YE, HEAR YE
Dear friends and supporters,
Recently, the Diabetic Society of Singapore (DSS) was adopted
by Oli 96.8FM, a MediaCorp radio station which broadcasts
Tamil programmes. We are grateful for the partnership as it provides
DSS with the crucial opportunities to educate the man in the street on
diabetes and its many preventable complications.
Oli 96.8 has been kindly publicising our Society’s range of services, support
group programmes, upcoming talks and health screening sessions. As a result, DSS
has received a number of enquiries regarding its services which includes the mobile clinic,
checks on blood sugar level, and professional counselling on diabetes management by DSS diabetes
nurse educators. We hope that this will translate into action among Singaporeans to adopt a healthy
lifestyle to prevent diabetes and to actively control it, if one has the condition.
Do take note that Oli 96.8 will be conducting a Blood Donation Drive on Sunday, 2 August 2009. Our
society will be participating in the drive by running blood tests and presenting a talk on diabetes.
As our country faces the growing spread of the H1N1 Virus, our government is taking all the necessary
steps to prevent its escalation. We trust that you, too, are doing your part by adhering to the Ministry of
Heath guidelines. For more information, please check out the following website and document:
