Other UAE judges include Saeed Shalash, Editor of Zahrat Al Khaleej, Rachael Brown from the Jam Jar (who are also providing some of the prizes) as well as representatives from the Ministry of Health and the Emirates Diabetes Society.

In Lebanon, judges will include Ramze Khoury, local Lebanese rap artist, Lebanese painter, Bernard Renno who also owns the gallery Vestige d’Orient Atelier D’art and is the ‘Attachee Cultural of the General Consulate of Latvia/EU in Lebanon’.

  1. Great opportunity for diabetics. They face so many challenges that others do not when it comes to everyday life. I have found a website called http://www.nutritionaltree.com that I would like to share with others becuase they allow people to review their health supplement experience online for others to read and benefit from.

    Thanks
