You are invited to attend a Diabetes UK Awareness talk on the morning of Wednesday 14th November. There will be 4 sessions on each campus
in BA 02 003
There are 100,000 people living with diabetes in Northern Ireland and this number is set to continue to rise, having increased more than 60% in the last decade.
Every day in the UK, around 700 people are diagnosed with diabetes. That’s one person every two minutes. It is potentially the most devastating health crisis of our time. Diabetes can affect all aspects of someone’s life, but a lack of awareness and understanding can lead to stigma and people not getting the support they need.
Wednesday, 14th November is World Diabetes Day and Ulster University in conjunction with Diabetes UK are holding awareness sessions on each campus to provide information on Diabetes. At each session there will be a presentation covering signs and symptoms, risk factors, how to reduce your risk, there will also be staff available to talk to afterwards and ask questions.
Please click on the start time that suits you and book a place at one of these sessions.
We look forward to meeting you there.
