Staff and friends from the U.S. Embassy were proud to support the Global Diabetes Walk in Samoa in early March. What a great turnout and great event. Malo lava One Touch Ministries Samoa, Nobesity Samoa, and the Ministry of Health!
By taking part in the Global Diabetes Walk, everyone has the opportunity to raise awareness about the need for worldwide action for the many disadvantaged and vulnerable population groups with diabetes. At the same time it directs attention to a low-cost physical activity so essential for health which can help prevent type 2 diabetes as well as many other non-communicable diseases.
