In a recent engaging webinar, we delved into the important subject of Diabetes during pregnancy, reaching out to 57 attendees from different countries.
We opened by identifying those at risk, including individuals with family history, specific ethnic backgrounds, obesity, previous gestational diabetes, or polycystic ovary syndrome.
Research and Prevention Insights
Key insights were shared on preventing gestational and type two diabetes, with a highlight on the Mediterranean diet. We had speakers from various studies and hospitals, including Dr. Tarakeswari, who explained real-life applications in India.
A delightful culinary competition added flavor, with Rachana winning with her dish of Palak Roti, Palak Dahl, and Egg!
The webinar was a collaborative effort by stakeholders including Barts Charity, Queen Mary University of London, Fernandez Hospital in India, the University of Birmingham and Elly Charity,
"This webinar showcased a mix of informative research, community engagement, and collaborative spirit."
The event culminated in a beautiful visual representation of the event, a testament to our collective dedication to understanding and addressing diabetes in pregnancy!
