Carrick-on Shannon – Meet 1-on-1 with Diabetes Health Experts

March 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Opportunity to meet Diabetes Experts 1-on-1

The Landmark Hotel, Carrick on Shannon

 Wednesday 15th of March from 7pm-9pm


Diabetes Ireland supported by a HSE National Lottery Grant Scheme is offering people with Type 2 diabetes the opportunity to meet face-to-face with diabetes experts outside of a hospital setting to learn more about their condition. We have gathered four experts from a variety of fields in the area of Type 2 diabetes to host our event at The Landmark Hotel, Carrick on Shannon on Wednesday 15th of March from 7-9pm.

 Each speaker will give a 5-minute introduction on their topic and then all attendees will be divided into small groups. Our experts will move from table-to-table in rotation for 15-minute Q&A sessions. This allows for easy conversation and provides the opportunity for attendees to ask anything they like about diabetes, or just listen and learn from other questions. The experts and their topics are:


  • “ The importance of self-managing your Diabetes”

Dr Cathy McHugh, Consultant Endocrinologist, Sligo University Hospital

  • “Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose. What do I need to know?”

Jacqueline O Connor, Senior Dietitian

  • “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important”

Patricia Murray, Community Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Sligo University      Hospital

  • “Tips for self-management of your feet”

Emily Madden, Podiatrist, Sligo University Hospital
