DASL participated in the IDF World Diabetes Congress [WDC] in Vancouver, Canada from 30th November to 4th December 2015. Five delegates attended the event which included 2 members of staff and 3 resource persons which included a Vice President, Secretary and the Secretary to the board of Trustees. Two participants of the IB were chosen to represent DASL in the Young Leaders in Diabetesprogramme which was held prior to the WDC. This was a life changing experience for them as there were 150 young leaders from more than 80 countries who participated in this leadership trainingprogramme. The confidence and the increase inself esteem these youngsters havegained, is immeasurable.

We are proud to announce that the Sugar Trail was judged the best activity in the South East Asia region.
