After being acknowledged for his contribution in the field of diabetes, Dr. Manoj Khandelwal, Endocrinologist, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur, bagged Diabetes Awareness Initiative Award, an innovative initiative by Diabetes India with the support of USV Pvt Ltdon 27th February 2019 in Delhi.

“India is the capital of diabetes and this health anomaly is getting prevalent at every corner. I received this award for creating awareness among patients, HCPs and general public. I have conducted free medical camps in every two months which included expensive sugar tests and HBA1C tests for free. Along with this, l delivered lectures on the prevention of diabetes too. As a result, patients in the early and the severe stage of diabetes were benefitted from these camps. Altering lifestyle, following a balanced dietary plan, exercising on daily basis for 30-40 minutes are few habits one should adhere to. Also, avoiding smoking and consumption of alcohol reduces the chances of contracting diabetes,” says Dr. Manoj Khandelwal.

Diabetes India received more than 130 applications from 15 designated states where each and every applicant was screened and graded based on the qualitative and quantitative parameters. After a tough screening process, 14 winners were shortlisted. Dr. Manoj is the only Doctor nominated from Rajasthan.
