This meeting will allow people with Type 2 diabetes access to expert medical advice in a pleasant, supportive environment at no cost to them. On the night we will also highlight available local support networks such as Diabetes Ireland and the diabetes team in the hospital and the community so that people with diabetes know where to access help locally (Donegal branch of Diabetes Ireland). A great deal of support can also be obtained from speaking with other people who are also living with Diabetes.
