Education towards excellent diabetes care

An empowered nation against diabetes


We work as one to conquer diabetes through education. In an atmosphere of openness, together we learn, educate and enjoy camaraderie in serving a good cause. We regard patients and their loved ones, who are our work’s meaning, as family.

Best health-care service is our irreducible minimum. We explore and share new knowledge that may enable diabetics, high-risk individuals, and the general public to lead healthier lives. We serve unconditionally, unmindful of the odds and the time, and without expectations of any personal gain.

We are trustworthy educators who disseminate only truthful and relevant information diabetes. Probity, sincerity and fairness mark the way we pursue our goals. Living the Golden Rule, we conduct ourselves as educators in accordance with the highest standards of ethics.

We give our best at our best. As new learning is key to the conquest of diabetes, we try hard to search for, acquire, and share the best knowledge on diabetes care. We continuously sharpen our teaching skills and improve our technologies and processes of impart ng knowledge

Empowering people against diabetes is our reason for being. Thus, we devote time and sincere effort to our cause. Determined, we work hard to get more and more people enlightened on total diabetes care. We shall persist until we realize our vision of a Philippines fully empowered against diabetes.
