Councillor Sandra Duffy
“We felt it was very important to go along and take part in Risk Assessment roadshow.
There needs to be a focus on helping to try and raise awareness of this illness ,and alert patients to the early warning signs and to increase knowledge and awareness about diabetes and its treatment. Initiatives like this are very important.
She went on to say
“For many adjusting to the news that they or a member of your family has diabetes takes time and it is often helpful to meet other people who have been through a similar situation. They can offer understanding, help and support at an important time”
