Lose Weight, Get Active… Fight Diabetes! Goes To Baguio!

The Philippine Diabetic Athletes (PDAT), a non-stock, non-profit organization that seeks to inspire, educate, and encourage Filipino diabetics to manage their disease through an active and healthy lifestyle, is holding the second leg of seminars titled “Lose Weight, Get Active… Fight Diabetes!” 
Following the success of the World Diabetes Day celebration held November last year at the Glorietta 5 Activity Center, PDAT continues to bring this public service event to local diabetic communities in the Philippines. These series of seminars aims to educate and empower diabetics by bringing notable doctors, nutritionists, and coaches to different provinces.

The second leg of “Lose Weight, Get Active… Fight Diabetes!” will be held on April 27, 2013 (Saturday), from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. at SM Baguio’s Indoor Activity Center.
