Diabetic feet workshop for beauty salons

POSTED: 11/20/12 1:54 PM

St. Maarten – A workshop is planned for beauty salons and spas in particular for their owners and employees about identifying diabetic feet next week Monday.

Beauty salon and spa owners and employees are asked to sign-up with the Ministry of Public Health by calling 542-2078 or email:sectionpep@yahoo.com. The workshop will be held at Carl & Sons Café on the Walter Nisbeth Road.

The ministry is working together with the Diabetes Foundation and the Rotary Club St. Martin Sunrise, to profile diabetes prevention; a number of activities have been organized.

The World Health Organization estimates that more than 346 million people worldwide have diabetes. This number is likely to more than double by 2030 without intervention. Almost 80 per cent of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
