Ask The Expert – Type 2 Diabetes Round Table

November 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Answering all your Queries

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 Type 2 diabetes to answer YOUR questions.

When : Thursday 17th November

Time : 7pm – 9pm

Where : The Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore, Co Offaly

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 12) 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.
