Into the blue: Argus highlights diabetes

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Each year on World Diabetes Day, November 14, famous landmarks around the globe, including the London Eye and Sears Tower in Chicago, are lit up in blue to raise awareness of the rising prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This year, Bermuda was included in the effort.

The Argus Group, partnered with the Bermuda Diabetes Association, have joined a global diabetes awareness campaign by illuminating its 14 Wesley Street offices in blue during the month of November.

The Argus Group is committed to working with stakeholders to reverse the growing trend of Diabetes in Bermuda.

The Diabetes Reversal Programme, launched in March 2017 by Premier Health and Wellness Centre, in partnership with renowned endocrinologist Dr David Cavan, Argus and the Bermuda Diabetes Association, aims to help individuals diagnosed with type 2 diabetes develop the skills and confidence to self-manage their condition and improve their quality of life.

Michelle Jackson, executive vice-president group insurance, The Argus Group, said: “Having the Argus building illuminated in blue lights supports the global diabetes initiative to raise awareness of diabetes and bring to light its prevalence in Bermuda. “At Argus, our mission is to advocate for and support the health and wellness of our community. Helping our members in leading healthy lifestyles is an important step towards addressing the growing epidemic of diabetes on the island.”
