Killarney – T2 Meet the Experts
May 5, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm€5.00
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 gathered four experts from a variety of fields in the area of Type 2 diabetes to answer YOUR questions.
Location: Dromhall Hotel, Muckross Road, Killarney, Co. Kerry
Date: Thursday, May 5th, 2016 Time: 7pm – 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 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 4 experts and their topics are:
• “Good Eye Health & the Diabetic Retina Screen Service”
Dr Mark James, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Cork University Hospital
• “Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose. What do I need to know?”
Ms Shirley Beattie, Senior Dietitian, Cork University Hospital
• “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important”
Mr. Shane Flynn, Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Kerry General Hospital
• “Tips for self-management of your feet”
Ms.Tricia Casey, Senior Podiatrist, Diabetes Ireland
Places are limited to 40 so booking early is essential.
