Community case studies
We regularly go into the community to talk about diabetes and answer people’s questions.
Recent events included a talk to the York Carers group. Here we discussed the impact of type 2 diabetes and ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Often these events work well in venues unconnected to health care.
An open invitation to talk through diabetes concerns at a library attracted people from many different backgrounds and resulted in an engaging and very constructive discussion.
Our input is welcomed at health screening events, and we were team leaders at a collection weekend for Diabetes UK.
