Rock, why not take your
breakfast on offer and head

your own, and take it outdoors - to
Fort Bennett! This fort is at the end of
the small road on the right, just off the
road that leads down to Stonehaven
Bay in Black Rock.
There is a path that leads up to the

ECU's 5th Annual Diabetes Walk will
be held on November 15, in conjunction
with the Rotary Club of South West
Tobago. The walk will begin at Store
Bay Beach Facility from 4.00 pm and
end with a health fair at the Gulf City
Mall in Lowlands.
The walk, held to commemorate World Diabetes
Day, will be observed on November 14, with the
theme "Healthy Living and Diabetes."
ECU adopted Diabetes as its Corporate Social Re-
sponsibility in 2009 and since then the organisation has
been on a drive to create awareness of the disease
through testing clinics held annually at its nine locations
throughout the country. Statistics have ranked this is-
land fifth in the world as it has been found that one out
of every eight persons suffer from this disease.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates
that the prevalence of diabetes in T&T is 12 to 13 per
cent, almost twice the global average. This means
that improving diabetes care and its outcomes re-
quires intervention at multiple levels.
