Event description

Description

Diabetes is a chronic, progressive disease that can deeply affect the quality of one’s life if it is not well-controlled. It is the second leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Singapore. The Government of Singapore has taken huge strides in bringing awareness about Diabetes and promoting a healthy lifestyle among its citizens.


JTC together with the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), A*STAR, STEMCELL Technologies Inc and BiotechinAsia are organising a 1-day seminar “Let’s Discuss Diabetes” that will further the conversation on Diabetes.


The 1-day programme will have 3 segments, with the morning featuring talks on Diabetes awareness, clinical sharing and research initiatives in Singapore, a lunchtime showcase featuring healthcare startups and Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) Diabetes Awareness exhibits, and the afternoon focused on research using stem cells to study and model Diabetes.


A few healthcare startups in the Diabetes management space will also be pitching their innovative technologies and services during the morning session. All participants and the public are invited to view the lunchtime showcase.
