ROSCOMMON Type 2 Diabetes Roundtable Workshop

March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ask the Experts about Your Diabetes

 

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. We have gathered four experts from a variety of fields in the area of Type 2 diabetes to answer YOUR questions. The meeting is being held in Roscommon Town on Thursday March 7th   7 pm – 9 pm

On the night, each expert 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 15 minute Question & Answer sessions. This allows for easy conversation and a chance to ask them questions about your diabetes, or just to listen in.

 The experts and their topics are:

  • “Medical management of Diabetes”

     Consultant Endocrinologist: Dr Esther O Sullivan

  • “Latest Dietary Guidelines for managing Diabetes”

     Community Diabetes Dietitian: Ms Niamh Feeney

  •  “Understanding your numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important”

     Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Diabetes: Ms Margaret Kelly

  •  “Tips for Self-Management of your feet’

     Senior Podiatrist: Ms Catriona Rourke
