About

The Diabetes foundation of St. Maarten is a  non-profit organization established with the aims of creating awareness to diabetes among the general population.

Activities

Every Saturday the DFS can be found at a location on the island offering free glucose and blood pressure testing to the public. On occasions cholesterol check-up is offered as well for a small fee.
 
In offering free testing to the public the foundation hopes to find people with pre-diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes, or uncontrolled diabetes so that these persons can be referred to their general practitioner for further testing, therapy and guidance.
 
The DFS has two big events annually; the Diabetes Fair in the month of June and the walk-a-thon in the month of November. The 14th of November has been marked to celebrate worldwide as the World Diabetes Day.
