Ryman Healthcare Donates $100,000 to Diabetes NZ

12 May 2006

Ryman Healthcare has donated $100,000 to Diabetes New Zealand.

The savage disease has been recieving a lot of Press of late due to how serious it is actually becoming.

This week, Diabetes NZ are holding their AGM and annual conference in Christchurch hosting delegates and representatives from Diabetes New Zealand from all over the Country including researcher Professor Don Beavon.

The issue of the disease and how serious it is becoming in todays society is quite shocking. Diabetes is the hidden trigger for many serious conditions including heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, blindness, kidney failure and amputations. Diabetes New Zealand are addressing the issue and are doing their utmost to educate New Zealand about how to prevent the disease through lifestyle forces.

Ryman Healthcare donated $100,000 to the organisation at a function last night, to aid in Diabetes NZ's quest in the prevention of this savage disease.
