Starting from September 2015 The Nigeria Diabetes Online Community will engage in a regular monthly tweet chat every last Friday of the month 8pm – 9pm local time with the hashtag #NGdoc.
We aim through this tweetchat medium to connect, empower, support and educate people living with diabetes, friends, families, healthcare providers and advocates.
To do that effectively we need to communicate in a way and language that is acceptable and accessible to all. To parents, children, teenagers, friends, family, employers and people living with diabetes.
