Diabetes Ireland, in partnership with Novartis, are running a series of meetings in 2016 and giving you the chance to come face to face with the experts.
The first on our series of meetings took place in Limerick. The meeting gave people with diabetes the chance to sit face to face with diabetes experts outside of a hospital setting and learn more about their condition.
At the meeting each expert speaker gave a five-minute introduction to their topic. Then attendees split up into small groups for round table discussion. The experts moved from table to table in rotation for 15-minute question and answer sessions.
People really enjoyed the round-table structure of the event and said that they had all their questions answered. They also felt that they would change how they managed their diabetes based on what they learnt at the event. Attendees really valued interacting with other people with diabetes and felt that the speakers were excellent.
The next meetings will be:
• Waterford, Thursday 15 October
• Cork, Monday 19 October
• Dublin, Wednesday 21 October,
