Asian School of Business Organized a Blood Sugar Test and Awareness Camp

On November 14, 2022, on the occasion of World Diabetes Day, Asian School of Business organised a “blood sugar test and awareness camp” in partnership with DIYA (Diabetes India Youth in Action, an NGO), for faculty, students, employees, and the locals of Hajipur (an adopted village under the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan). All of the Hajipur villagers, faculty, students, and locals were urged to take part and have their blood sugar levels checked. About 250 camp participants had their blood sugar levels checked at the college, while another 100 were tested at various locations throughout the village of Hajipur (adopted village under the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan). A crucial undertaking of the camp was to extend its reach to rural residents, who are the least aware of this disease and manage their diabetes with little understanding of its implications. People with diabetes were found throughout the camp; they were the ones who were unaware of it because they had never been checked. The individuals who attended the camp were informed about the issue by the DIYA team and the students from the Asian School of Business. The team made an effort to inspire people to adopt a healthy lifestyle and stressed the value of eating well, particularly for those with prediabetes. In the camp, there was discussion about the need to reverse diabetes for as long as feasible in order to put off complications as much as possible. We at the Asian School of Business think that leading a healthy lifestyle makes one more productive; in light of this, we support holding such camps in the future and stepping up our efforts to make the nation healthier.
