Program to Prevent Diabetic Complications in

no-diabetesThe Program

This program is a project of the Patsy Douglas Youth Empowerment Foundation. Diabetes is a major cause of death and disability in the Caribbean nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. We strive to provide patient and health care provider education and other resources to reduce the incidence of amputations and other disabilities among diabetic Vincentians and improve quality of life of those with such disabilities.

The Foundation

The Patsy Douglas Youth Empowerment Foundation was founded to honor the life and work of Sister Patricia Ann Douglas, who dedicated her life to education and service on the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) in the West Indies.  Troubled by the increasing number of Vincentians experiencing preventable and disabling complications from diabetes, the foundation’s founder, Ann Marie Lee-Wilkins, has expanded her mission to include education of patients and health care providers in SVG on the prevention of complications of diabetes.

The Patsy Douglas Youth Empowerment Foundation (PDYEF) is a nonprofit organization, and your donations is tax deductible.  Donations of money and supplies are very much appreciated and enable us to continue this work.
