Prof Chia Kee Seng, Dean of the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health at NUS noted that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, in choosing to focus on diabetes as one of Singapore's longer-term issues in his National Day Rally 2017 speech, was a timely rallying call for Singaporeans to take health and wellness seriously and start making real lifestyle changes. Prof Chia highlighted that a collective mindset shift is the key to creating sustainable population-level behavioural change, and shared some suggestions on how we can go about this.
