To mark the start of International Diabetes Awareness Month on Friday November 1, the Department of Health, Western Cape on Wellness and the Sweet Life Diabetic Organisation hosted their U-Turn Diabetes event on the Promenade. The aim was to encourage people to come and have free diabetic screenings, as well as take part in free exercise classes, games and other entertainment to help promote a healthy lifestyle.
