Drogheda: Type 1 Diabetes Roundtable Workshop
April 25, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm5.00€
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 experts from a variety of fields in the area of Type 1 diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in the Boyne Valley Hotel, Dublin Road, Drogheda on Monday 25th April 2016 from 7-9.15pm.
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 20 minute Q&A session. 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:
Type 1 Diabetes Treatments (Pumps/Meters/Insulins etc.)
Ms Julie O Hanrahan, Diabetes Nurse, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda
- Good Eye Health & the Diabetic Retina Screen Service
Dr Ian Dooley, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Mater Hospital, Dublin
