Rotary Club project teaches children healthy living to avoid diabetes
Our Diabetes Poster has is getting some media attention! We’re so pleased we can help children in Guam make healthy choices.
Luckie Sakamoto, president of Rotary Club of Guam Sunrise, secured a district grant, which was used to simplify diabetes prevention into 10 key messages with animated drawings on a poster for children. Health officials have said there are more children in Guam and Micronesia who have Type 2 diabetes today compared to 20 years ago.
The posters will be distributed to schools, youth clubs, medical clinics and churches on Guam, Saipan, Palau, Chuuk, and Pohnpei, targeting children between the ages of 9-14.
