Event description

Description

Our Diabetes Wellness Days bring together a wealth of information under one roof for people living with all forms of diabetes, family members, friends, carers and the diabetes healthcare professionals that care for them. The days provide the tools, knowledge and practical skills needed to improve life with diabetes and the keys to healthier living, ensuring all participants have the opportunity to raise their questions, share their experiences and enjoy the support of a friendly, like-minded diabetes community in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Registration fee £5 per person ­­­

The Exhibition Room

The exhibition room will form the hub of the day, giving you the opportunity and flexibility to spend as much time as you like visiting the stands and chatting with a variety of experts who will be on hand to offer advice on diet, health, lifestyle and the latest blood-glucose meters and diabetes related products and services.

The Programme

The programme will focus on the important topics that matter most to people living with diabetes, with sessions repeated throughout the day, giving you the opportunity to take part in a variety of talks delivered by the specialist diabetes teams from your region. There will also be the chance to try some fun exercise taster classes, meet diabetes peers and learn how to take better control of your diabetes.
