The Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL) in collaboration with PALB Pharmaceutical Limited has organised a diabetes screening for its staff.

The exercise, which took place at the Training Room of the company on Friday, November 16, forms part of activities to mark this year's World Diabetes Awareness Day. Over 150 staff were screened. 

The Event and Promotions Manager of GCGL, Mrs Abigail Hagan, said over 200 staff were expected to participate in the screening to enable them to check their sugar levels and range.

The Medical Communications Officer of PALB Pharmaceuticals, David Amoah Asumadu, said the company partnered GCGL because of the interest the company (GCGL) has in the health of Ghanaians.

He admonished the participants to reduce their intake of sugary foods and also regularly go for check-ups in order to enable them to seek early medical interventions. 

PALB Pharmaceutical is a company that distributes OneTouch Glucometer and strips in and across the country.
