DRAGONBALL (Diabetes Risk Reduction Program by Application of Healthy Lifestyle) is one of the activities carried out by SCOPH CIMSA UNEJ. This activity is a new program held in May 2019 which is conducted every month by SCOPH CIMSA UNEJ. DRAGONBALL aims to reduce the risk of diabetes and reduce the prevalence of diabetes in Sukoreno Village, Kaliwates District, Jember Regency, East Java. The reason for implementing this program in Sukoreno Village is because this village has the highest prevalence of diabetes in Jember Regency. The activities carried out were conducting physical health checks, blood pressure examination and blood sugar test without being charged. After an examination of blood pressure and blood sugar, an assessment and education is given to individuals with informed consent. Every individual who has agreed to informed consent will be educated about what diabetes is, how to manage diabetes and examples of applying a healthy lifestyle.
