The La Romaine Diabetic Support Group 4th Annual General Meeting was held on May 25th, 2019 at the La Romaine Health Centre to elect the officers for the term 2019/2020. One hundred and twelve persons came out to celebrate and listen as the group’s sitting Chairperson Dr. Sarah Roopnarine reflected on their activities for 2018/2019 and presented their projections for the upcoming year 2019/2020.
