Sun Life Foundation unveils “Kick Diabetes Advocacy”

As the Filipino’s partner in health, Sun Life Philippines (Sun Life) is ramping up its  fight against diabetes with the launch of initiatives that promote diabetes  awareness and prevention through a healthier lifestyle. 

The efforts kick off with the launch of the Sun Life Diabetes Corner. These will be  integrated in the recently established Sun Life Barangay Health Stations (SLBHS),  an initiative of the Sun Life Financial-Philippines Foundation, Inc. (Sun Life  Foundation), and will be piloted in Barangay Pansol, Taal, Batangas. 

The Diabetes Corner will integrate a diabetes program in the SLBHS to promote  awareness and prevention. Basic medical services such as blood sugar screening  will be provided for pre-diabetic patients, while informative dissemination will be  done through fliers and educational videos. Healthy diet options will also be shared  to diabetic patients to help them better manage their condition. 

“Diabetes prevention is a global advocacy for Sun Life. We remain optimistic that  with proper education and access to basic medical services, patients will triumph over this debilitating illness,” says Benedict Sison, Country Head and CEO of Sun  Life. “We are grateful for this chance to help our countrymen live healthier and  brighter lives.” 

To reach even more Filipinos, Sun Life will also activate the “Sun Life Wellness on  Wheels,” a mobile diabetes clinic that will go on a caravan to partner communities to conduct blood sugar screening, offer free consultation, and share relevant information. This will be done in the next phase of the program. 

Moreover, Sun Life, in cooperation with Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance, will also  launch the SUNPIOLOGY Family Challenge to make health and wellness a shared  goal among families as they fight diabetes. Everyone is encouraged to follow Sun  Life’s social media pages, @sunlifeph on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, for details to be shared soon. 

All these align with Sun Life’s current campaign dubbed “Partner in Health,” which  aims to encourage more Filipinos to live healthier lives for a brighter future.
