Kareem Abdul-Jabbar : Basketball legend set for UAE diabetes visit

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will be in the UAE on October 28 to kick start the Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC) ‘Take a Step for Diabetes Week with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’.

The week will feature a series of health and fitness education events. Imperial College of London Diabetes is the title partner of the event.

With public health as one of its core pillars, ICLDC launched Diabetes-Knowledge-Action, a public health awareness campaign in 2007 to call attention to the wellness of the nation.

“We are very excited to have Kareem visit the UAE in support of ICLDC’s healthy lifestyle campaign,” said Bashar Al Ramahi, ICLDC CEO.
“His participation in various community events hosted by our centres in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain will really help re-enforce the message that a balanced diet and regular exercise are the smart, simple steps needed,” he added.

Also, the countdown for #Walk2014 has begun, as well as World Diabetes Day.

They take place on November 7 and November 14, respectively.
