Launching ceremony and press conference
The launching ceremony and press conference were held on 19 October 2004 in Eaton Hotel and was well received. The reporters were impressed by our President demonstrating insulin injection on hiself. The press conference was followed immediately by the Diabetic Update course. The course was a series of update lectures for general practitioners for the practical management on diabetes mellitus and its complications. The aim is to improve the quality of service through the development of a team approach among the general practitioners and the specialists.
The course was attended by about 100 doctors. Most of them finished the whole course and those participants who have attended more than 80% of the lectures were awarded a certificate of attendance.
