We have made changes with the badge of DFT! It is more self describing and stands in support of our DFT Chapter.

The Blue Circle on the top is the Universal Blue Circle Symbol for Diabetes, also known as Diabetes mellitus !

The Food Triangle shown at the bottom part of the badge, is the “suggested” food triangle for a diabetic!
