Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic and CSR arm of Infosys, today announced the opening of the second Diabetes Reversal Counseling Center in Nagpur, in collaboration with the Association for Diabetes and Obesity Reversal (ADORE). Earlier, Infosys Foundation had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ADORE to help in remission of type 2 diabetes in patients through lifestyle modifications. A sum of INR 2.4 crore was pledged towards this initiative, covering two centers in Pune and Nagpur for a period of three years. The Pune center started operations on 21st November this year to mark World Diabetes Day.
The initiative is aimed at benefiting 12,000 patients over 3 years. Through lifestyle modifications, ADORE will assess the progress of patients based on parameters like reduction in blood sugar levels and weight, among others. Additionally, it intends to reduce the dose of diabetic medicines for a minimum of 50 percent of the patients.
The Diabetes Reversal Counseling Center in Nagpur, which is scheduled to commence operations from 1st December, will provide free counselling services to patients. The center will also conduct a free HbA1c testing camp for ten days from 5th to 14th December where people can register themselves for free testing.
Sunil Kumar Dhareshwar, Trustee, Infosys Foundation, said, “We are extremely delighted to collaborate with ADORE to mitigate the effects of type 2 diabetes in thousands of patients. This synergy is driven by our shared vision to improve lives of patients by encouraging and enabling minor changes in their lifestyle. We are confident that these small steps, coupled with ADORE’s supervision and guidance, will bring about a colossal difference in their health.”
“We appreciate the support of Infosys Foundation as we strive to eradicate type-2 diabetes for patients in Pune and Nagpur. The soon-to-be-operational Nagpur center, manned with a diabetologist and counselor, will provide individual counseling and guidance. We hope to take this endeavor to greater heights to help better as many lives as possible”, said, Dr. Jagannath Dixit, Chairman of Association for Diabetes and Obesity Reversal (ADORE).
