SCOPH – WDD 2018

Written by mcdcimsa, on January 19th, 2019

On Saturday, the 24th of November, as part of region 3’s La Familia World Diabetes
Day celebration, SCOPH CIMSA UPH paid a visit to SMAN 23 Tangerang. The main
objectives of this event was to promote awareness about diabetes to the school
children so that they could be agents of anti-diabetes in their families. This event
was composed of general lecture on diabetes and followed by a visual booth tours
on more specific components of diabetes. Around 100 senior year students (12
grade) participated in this event.
The lecture by dr Immanuella covered basic information such as what exactly is
diabetes, how could a person get diabetes to begin with, and how to prevent the
disease itself. The lecture was then followed by a questions and answers session
where the majority of student asked impressive questions in regards to the
technicality and mechanisms of the disease, all the while having fun. Members of
the committee also sat down and participated in listening to this very informative
lecture.
After the lecture session has ended, the students were divided into several groups
and started to roll through all the visual booths the committee has prepared. There
are two SCOPH members in each booth which will explain about a specific aspect of
diabetes such as types of diabetes, prevention, signs and symptoms, risk factors,
and etcetera. One of the booth was for free blood glucose test where everyone had
the opportunity to be tested and consulted. The students were hesitant to be
actively involved at first but then showed keen participation and were actively
asking critical questions. For most of them, this was their very first blood sugar test.
Moreover, we do hope the experience gained here to be beneficial for the students
and their families, and also the SCOPHeroes of UPH.
The OC gained much experience throughout organizing this event and the
participants showed high enthusiasm, as seen in their active involvement in the
sessions. At the end of the project, they agreed that they have gained much
knowledge in regards to diabetes which encourages them to share along this
knowledge with their family at home. The school and teachers were also happy to
host a similar event like this one in the coming future again. All in all, this activity
was meant to celebrate the international World Diabetes Day by raising awareness
about the illness, as according to the CIMSA Program: Non-communicable
Diseases.
