Quoting the President, IDF

"It is a pleasure officially partnering with Jothydev's Diabetes Research Center and P.Kesavadev Trust. The organization has been phenomenal in conducting more than 450 free diabetes screening and awareness camps all across Kerala. We appreciate thousands of diabetes awareness programs via media and world diabetes day events for more than a decade. Mr. Mohanlal, is a celebrity not only in Kerala but also globally. He is an ardent advocate of healthy living and has been with Dr.Jothydev Kesavadev for public campaigns and media events to promote healthy ageing, physical activity and prevention of diabetes since 15 years. His video titled 'Diabetes Chat' being telecast by most of the TV channels and available in YouTube disseminates strong messages on various aspects of diabetes prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. IDF recognizes his strong and persistent passion despite being not a diabetes patient to get involved in health campaigns and diabetes awareness activities. Hence IDF is awarding him .................... WDD is purely an awareness and educational program.

I congratulate Jothydev's Diabetes Research Center for taking the messages of IDF across Kerala. I request all organizations striving for a similar cause to join hands with Diabetes Kerala 2012."
