Cork: Ask the experts about your diabetes
October 19, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to sit face to face with the diabetes experts outside of a hospital setting to learn more about your condition?
Diabetes Ireland is delighted to offer you this opportunity. In partnership with Novartis, we have gathered four experts from a variety of fields in the area of diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in the Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork on Monday 19th October from 7-9pm.
On the night, each speaker will give a 5 minute introduction on their topic. Following this, you and fellow attendees will be divided into small groups (no more than 13) at a round discussion table. Our experts will move from table to table in rotation for a 15 minute Q&A sessions. This should allow for easy conversation and give you the opportunity to ask them anything you like about your diabetes, or just listen.
The experts and their topics are:
- Good Eye Health & the Diabetic Retina Screen Service
o Mr. Mark James, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Cork University Hospital
- Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose. What do I need to know?
o Ms Margaret Humphreys, Senior Dietitian, Cork University Hospital
- Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important.
o Ms Jenny Dunbar, Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Diabetes Ireland
- Tips for self-management of your feet
o Ms Alexandra Ryan, Senior Podiatrist, Diabetes Ireland
