Limerick: Keep an Eye on your Diabetes
May 26, 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 four experts from a variety of fields in the area of diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in the Strand Hotel, Limerick on Tuesday 26th May 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 DiabeticRetina Screen Service”
Ms Marie Hickey Dwyer , Consultant Ophthalmologist, Limerick University Hospital
• “Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose, what do I need to know?”
Ms Pauline Dunne, Senior Dietitian, Diabetes Ireland
• “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important’.
Ms Ann O’Sullivan, Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Limerick University Hospital
• “Tips for self-management of your feet’
Ms Assumpta Coyle, Senior Podiatrist.
To avail of this invaluable opportunity register today by completing the enclosed form or call Sinead on 1850 909 909. It is €5 to register and please note that we have a maximum of 50 places so register now and do not miss out. There will be light refreshments available at 8pm.
