Sun Life Bolsters Initiatives to Fight Diabetes

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.
