International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and World Health Organization (WHO) have announced that November 14th will be the World Diabetes Day, to improve diabetes advocacy worldwide and to promote the global awareness campaign of diabetes prevention and care.  

The guest of honor for the event that took place on the World Diabetes Day was film star Prashanth. Several senior doctors specializing in the field of diabetes were also honored during this event. Dr. V. Mohan, Chairman and Managing Director, Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre (DMDSC) says, “To commemorate this year World Diabetes Day on November 14th, we have organized a very special event to honour our “little stars”, namely children with Neonatal Diabetes. Neonatal Diabetes is diagnosed within the first 6 months of life. Although it is a rare condition, physicians, diabetologists and pediatricians need to be sensitized about these conditions in children as this condition can otherwise be missed altogether.” 

Dr. P. Jeyachandran, Director and Superintendent, Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children, Chennai presided over the function and inaugurated the ‘Neonatal and Monogenic Diabetes Registry’. Dr.  V. Poovazhagi, Asst. Prof. of Paediatrics, Diabetes Clinic, Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children, Chennai was honored for her work in the field of neonatal and juvenile diabetes.
