Diabetes Wellness Day North East

The Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation is working with Consultant Physician Dr Susan Jones, Lead Diabetes Nurse Lisa Specialist Doughty and the specialist diabetes team from the North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust to put on another Diabetes Wellness Day.

This year’s Diabetes Wellness Day North East will take place on Saturday, 9th November, 2013 at Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience and will coincide with the International Diabetes Federation’s ‘World Diabetes Day’ which is happening on Thursday, 14th November.

Registration will begin at 9am and the talks and activities will start at 10am. The day will conclude at around 4 pm. There will be an opportunity to listen to a variety of talks on different aspects of living with diabetes.

There will be an exhibition room with different diagnostic companies and local organisations present to talk about the latest blood-glucose monitors and diabetes related products and services as well as experts from the local diabetes healthcare teams, the retinal screening service, the diabetic podiatry service and other groups such as the Expert Patient Programme and many other support groups.

There is a small registration fee of £5 per person to help us with some of the running costs. The fee covers –

  • The full day’s educational programme

  • Registration tea and coffee.
