PRMR Inc. was pleased to be a part of the official groundbreaking ceremony of the Barbados Diabetes Foundation’s, Diabetes Care Centre. The Diabetes Centre will be located in Warrens adjacent to the Warrens polyclinic and the new Warrens Healthcare Complex, and is estimated to cost Bdos$5.5 mil.

The Centre, the primary raison d’etre of the Foundation, is the culmination of the collective efforts of the Foundation to arrest the high rate of diabetes on the island through research and a team approach to the treatment and care of diabetes.

As at the formation of the Foundation, the Maria Holder Trust was there to support and witness this landmark occasion. Enough cannot be said of the philanthropic work that MHM is doing in Barbados and the other Eastern Caribbean islands. The main contributors to the Centre are MHM, Medicor Foundation and the Ministry of Health.

The Centre is designed by Vicki Telford and being constructed by Nicholls and Edghill Construction Ltd.
