At People Association's events held by the presiding grassroots organisations in Singapore, healthier food choices will be served. Singapore has the second highest porportions of individuals with diabetes among developed nations as reported by the International Diabetes Federation. In my opinion, diagnosing diabetes is equally important as preventing or treating it. Numerous individuals do not have access to regular checkups due to lack of knowledge or financial assistance or a multitude of personal reasons. However, this is a great initiative set up by the People's Association and I hope that Singaporeans will eat more healthily to combat the rising risk of diabetes.
