Healthcare professionals invited to upcoming diabetes charity fundraiser

An established group of doctors on a mission to improve diabetes care is hosting a summer rooftop party later this year to raise money for several diabetes charities. 

Hosted by GoggleDocs, the Viva Las Vegas fundraiser will take place on Saturday, May 21 at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London.

Entitled ‘Raising a Smile for Diabetes’, the summer rooftop party will give dedicated healthcare professionals an evening off to enjoy a night of first-class entertainment.

Organisers of the event have stated: “Diabetes is one of the greatest health challenges of the 21st century as it imposes strain on the already stretched healthcare systems. This growing burden and lack of financial funding has increased the need for philanthropic donations to contribute to the work delivered by charitable organisations.

“Join us for an evening of food, drink, entertainment and giving support to charitable organisations that aspire to educate people living with diabetes, their families and carers to help them live life as fully as they can.”

Tickets cost £100 per person, with all proceeds raised donated to several diabetes charities, including the InDependent Diabetes Trust, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation and the Diabetes Outreach Prevention Programmes International.

Medical communications and pharmaceutical industry professionals are also eligible to attend the event.
