CLARE -Ask the Experts
November 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A not-to-be missed opportunity in Ennis, Co Clare
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. We have gathered four experts from a variety of fields in the area of Type 2 diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in The Temple Gate Hotel, Ennis, Co. Clare from 7-9pm on Thursday 23rd November 2017.
On the night, each expert 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 Question & Answer 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:
- “ The importance of self-managing your Diabetes”
Dr Ray O Connor, Limerick
- “Carbohydrates and how to better manage blood glucose. What do I need to know?”
Ms. Tonya O’Neill, Senior Community Dietitian. Limerick
- “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important”
Ms. Fiona Johnston, CNS Diabetes, Ennis Hospital
- “Top tips for self-management of your feet”
Ms. Assumpta Coyle, Podiatrist, University Hospital Limerick
To avail of this invaluable opportunity, register today, telephone 071-914 6001. Please note that we have a maximum of 48 places, which must be pre-booked so register today and do not miss out. There will be light refreshments available at 8:30pm.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your continuing support of Diabetes Ireland. We look forward to seeing you on the night.
