Mark Scotland said the "Be Fit Cayman Campaign" seeks to raise awareness in the community of chronic disease prevention including diabetes and its management. Diabetes can have a devastating and costly impact on the community but Scotland said it was a disease that could be beaten. “The good news is, we can all act on diabetes and the time is now,” he said. “Start today and take small steps to a diabetes-free world. It is as simple as taking your family for a walk.”
