MEMBERS of the public in Sibu have been urged to take advantage of the weekly screening conducted by the Diabetic Association of Malaysia, Sibu branch.

The free blood test is conducted during the weekends at the five-foot way in front of Pansar Bhd at Jalan Workshop.

“Diabetes is a silent killer. Most people may not be able to know there’s a problem until it is too late,” Diabetic Association of Malaysia, Sibu chairman Tiong Kiong King said yesterday.

Tiong’s text of speech was read by vice-chairperson Molly Hardin during the Volunteers Nite 2010 held to recognise the contribution by the association’s 200 members and volunteers in promoting awareness on the disease.
