According to diabetes news, pupils from six schools in the Highlands will join the fight against diabetes using creative awareness projects, including plays and music. The Histop scheme – Highland Schools Diabetes Prevention Project was devised by the UHI Department of diabetes and cardiovascular science. The aim is for NHS Highland to reduce the onset and risks of type 2 diabetes .
The Histop project was made possible by the Bridge to Employment BTE Programmen, part of a global scheme funded by Johnson and Johnson .
The community relations specialist at Lifescan, Lorraine Dick, reportedly said: “BTE has been the catalyst for a lot of activity in schools over the past few years, focusing on inspiring young people to consider careers in the area of science and technology. I am delighted that this new project has also taken off as a result of BTE.”
