TRIM – Type 2 Round-table meeting with Health Professionals
March 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Managing My Type 2 Diabetes Effectively”
A not-to-be missed opportunity in TRIM
Have you ever wanted to sit face to face with diabetes health care professionals outside of a hospital setting to learn more about your diabetes? Diabetes Ireland is delighted to offer you this opportunity. We have gathered four professionals from a variety of fields in the area of Type 2 diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in the Castle Arch Hotel, Trim on Wednesday 29th March from 7-9pm and meet with;-
The Topics for discussion are:
- “The Type 2 Medications Basket; Understanding the role of the medications I take”
Dr Shabahat Shah, Consultant Endocrinologist, Our Lady’s Hospital, Navan
- “New Food Pyramid, The role of Healthy Eating in Diabetes self-management”
Sally–Ann McLaughlin, Senior Community Dietitian, HSE North East
- “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important” Moira Haran, Community Diabetes Nurse Specialist, HSE North East
- “Tips for self-management of your feet”
Richard Henry, Senior Podiatrist, Our Lady’s Hospital, Navan
On the night, each speaker will give a 3 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 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 and learn from other questions. There will be light refreshments available at 8pm.
