It is suggested you book early as very limited seating is available for this program.
DESMOND focuses on providing you with practical skills for managing type 2 diabetes.
It is delivered by specially trained DESMOND educators who will help you to improve your self-management by improving your knowledge and understanding of your condition.
Throughout the program you will discuss the latest information and strategies on healthy food choices, physical activity and medication management. You will be able to consider strategies you might like to adopt or changes you might be ready to make.
The program is built around group activities, with participants sharing experiences and talking about what type 2 diabetes means to them. However if you don’t like the idea of sharing your experiences, you won’t be forced to contribute.
You will also have the chance to speak to a diabetes educator by yourself if you need to.
At the end of the sessions, participants will have information to take home for reference.
