Dublin: Ask the experts about your diabetes
October 21, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
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 nine experts from a variety of fields in the area of diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin on Wednesday 21st of October 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 13) 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 give you the opportunity to ask them anything you like about your diabetes, or just listen.
The experts and their topics are:
• Good Eye Health & the Diabetic Retina Screen Service
Mr. Paul O’Connell, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Mater Private Hospital and Mr. Eugene Ng, Consultant Opthalmologist, Mater Misericordiae Hospital
• Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose, what do I need to know?
Ms Edel Smyth and Sinead Hanley Senior Dietitians, Diabetes Ireland
• Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important
