Public Awareness Events





Throughout the year, we organise or participate in events and activities which are aimed at creating public awareness and addressing misconceptions of diabetes, like TDS Members' Rendezvous, Family Day, World Diabetes Day, various community health screening programmes and community health fairs and most notably, Walk With Diabetes. 


With our Guest-of-Honour, Minister for Health, Mr Gan Kim Yong flagging off Walk With Diabetes 2012, close to 1800 participants formed Singapore’s biggest human Blue Circle (the official World Diabetes Day Logo) at the Marina Bay in identifying with global efforts to unite for diabetes awareness. There was an air of great excitement as TOUCH Diabetes members and their families, friends, supporters, clients, corporate and pharmaceutical partners, staff and patients from hospitals, and volunteers from all walks of life rallied together for the meaningful cause.
