The Calicut forum for diabetes is an association, formed by a group of doctors, academicians, educators, para medical personnel and others interested in diabetes. It came into existence in August 2003 as a small gathering and we are now 75 in strength. The main objective of the association is to advance the academic standards of care-givers in diabetes
For this purpose we have been conducting regular monthly meetings wherein we have lectures and group discussions on various topics related to diabetes, relevant articles from current journals and case presentations. We have several eminent physicians and senior professors in the association who actively participate and share their views experiences and ideas on the subject. We also propose to setup a good library to strengthen our cause. We also intend to provide service to the diabetic patients by imparting diabetes awareness programs and free screening programs in and around Calicut.
