paramedical groups involved in the care of diabetic patients. The group holds annual
conventions to update its members; celebrates World Diabetes Day, and Diabetes Awareness
Week; conducts workshops on setting up diabetes clinics; and initiates programs in
schools—all aimed at the prevention and control of diabetes.
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.
