Mobile Diabetes Unit

Established in 2012, the Mobile Diabetes Unit is an RCSI Bahrain Community Outreach initiative run in collaboration with the School of Nursing and Midwifery and Bahrain Diabetes Society (BDS), with support from the Rotary Club of Manama.

The main aim of the unit is to educate children about the prevention and management of diabetes and its related issues. As part of the undergraduate nursing curriculum, students and staff visit a different school each week during the academic year to promote healthy eating and active lifestyles, through interactive games and activities. In addition, the unit also takes part in a number of wider community and national events over the course of the year.
