The Medical Centre, University of Lagos is organizing a walk/rally and public lecture with the theme: “EAT HEALTHY; BEAT DIABETES” which will begin on Thursday, December 1, 2016.

The 5th Annual Unilag Health Week programme is in response to the rapidly increasing epidemic of Diabetes Mellitus in many countries, with the documented dramatic increase  mostly in low and middle-income countries, especially in the West African sub-region.
This is to sensitize the community on lifestyle measures that have been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes so as to avoid diseases such as heart attacks, kidney failure, blindness, impotence, strokes, nerve damage and infections that can lead to amputation in those who already have the disease.
The Chairman of the programme is the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Rahamon Bello, FAEng and the Chief Host is Prof. Jane Ajuluchukwu, the Chairperson, UNILAG Medical Centre Management Board.  The programme of events is as follows:
