To celebrate World Diabetes Day, 2015, the Rwanda Diabetes Association, together with the Ministry of Health of Rwanda, the Rwanda Biomedical Center, and Team Type 1, set on a mission to raise awareness throughout the country. With a team comprised of 15 people from the Rwanda Diabetes Association and the Rwanda Biomedical Center, as well as 70 student volunteers, we conducted free screenings of blood sugar, body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure for the public and generated discussions around the disease.

From November 12th – 14th, 2015, our team conducted screenings (for body mass index, blood pressure, blood glucose and physical activity) at 6 campuses across the country and organized conferences to raise awareness of the disease.
