Health Awareness at Al'Quds University

Marking World Diabetes Day, and as part of a general health awareness scheme at Al'Quds University, medical students set up stations to measure people's blood sugar levels and give them imformation about the risks of diabetes. A cooking competition also took place to highlight the importance of healthy eating in preventing and managing the disease. Budding chefs brought in traditional spicey chicken dishes, healthy fish platters, tantalising taboulah and sugar-free desserts. The food was artistically presented and after the critics had sampled all, hoards of students tucked in. Local television reported on the event and we were very pleased when a local CADFA volunteer, Diana, came second place!
