Ms Anna Lim, DJ of FM 100.3, hosted the entire Forum.

Dr Ang touched on the topic of how to build resilience and mental immunity to manage stress and to avoid the negative consequences of stress.

Mdm Tan, seen here with her son, was one of the 2 patients who shared about her personal battle with diabetes mellitus and the amputation of her leg and how she coped with the ordeal. Her son said that over the last 8 years, it was also difficult for him to see his mother suffer. He went through stages of denial, anger, bargaining before he finally came to terms with his mother's illness and accept the need and responsibility of looking after her.
