Donegal – Meet Diabetes Experts 1-on-1
February 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
“Keep an Eye on your Diabetes”
Opportunity to meet Diabetes Experts 1-on-1 in Donegal
Mill Park Hotel, Donegal Town
Tuesday February 28th From 7pm-9pm
Diabetes Ireland supported by HSE National Lottery Grant Scheme is offering the people of Donegal 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 Mill Park Hotel, The Mullins, Donegal Town on Tuesday 28th of February 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 12) at a round discussion table. Our experts will move from table to table in rotation for 15 minute Q&A sessions. This should allow for easy conversation and gives you the opportunity to ask them anything you like about your diabetes, or just listen. There will be light refreshments available at 8pm.
The experts and their topics are:
- “Good Eye Health & the Diabetic Retina Screen Service”
Margaret Moran, Community Ophthalmologist,, Letterkenny, Co Donegal
- “The role of Healthy Eating in Diabetes self management”
Fiona Hegarty, Senior Dietitian, Letterkenny General Hospital
- “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important”
Kathleen Crerand, Community Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Donegal
- “Tips for self-management of your feet”
Ann Bell, Podiatrist
