GALWAY Type 2 Diabetes Roundtable Workshop

February 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 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 Galway City on Thursday February 28th  7:30 – 9:30pm

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:

Consultant Endocrinologist – Professor Sean Dinneen  –  “Medical Management of Diabetes

Senor Dietitian – Ms. Ciara Heverin –  “Lastest Dietary Guidelines for Managing Diabetes”   

Diabetes Nurse Specialist –  Ms. Brita Jordan –  “Understanding your Numbers; Why Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Glucose Levels are so Important”

Senior Podiatrist – Ms Emma Hynes    “Tips for Self-Management of your Feet”

 

To avail of this invaluable opportunity, register today  by telephoning Regina at the Western Regional Office of Diabetes Ireland on 071-9146001 or email [email protected]

Please note that we have a maximum of 48 places for each meeting so register today and do not miss out.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your continuing support of Diabetes Ireland. We look forward to seeing you on the night.
