Living with Diabetes Day 2015
The SSTO is teaming up with the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation and specialist teams from Lancashire NHS and Lancashire University Hospitals to host the second annual 'Living with Diabetes Day'.
This unique event brings together people living with diabetes, healthcare professionals, academics, students and diabetes organisations to provide a wealth of diabetes information under one roof.
Living with Diabetes Day gives people the chance to learn more about diabetes and provide them with the tools and increased understanding to support a pro-active approach to good self-management skills and subsequently improve quality of life.
This year's programme will feature talks by specialists in diabetes on many different aspects of living with the condition, with a particular focus on the importance of healthy diet and nutritional choices, the benefits of activity and exercise, looking after your feet and eyes, how structured diabetes education can be a force for positive change and much more.
As well as the programme of talks, the vibrant social and exhibition area will also provide an opportunity to meet a variety of experts who will be on hand to offer advice on diet, nutrition, health, lifestyle and the latest blood-glucose meters and diabetes related products and services.
Living with Diabetes Day takes place at UCLan's Foster Building, Saturday 21st March, 9.00am – 4.00pm.
