Diabetes UK And You
- 16 March 2017
Chris Askew, the chief executive of Diabetes UK will be talk about the role that Diabetes UK plays in supporting people with diabetes in the UK. This ranges from lobbying parliament for changes in the law, supporting vital diabetes research and promoting best practice care for people with diabetes.
Whilst our group operates on a local level, Chris will offer a unique insight into all the national work the chairty does to allow groups like ours to support you.
Houlden Hall is next to the Cathedreal Church of St Marie on Norfolk Row, Sheffield. The door is to the left of the church and the top buzzer is for Houlden Hall - though we usually have a greeter on the door.
Meetings are a great place for you to find out more information about diabetes, learn more about the Sheffield Group, and for you to meet other people with diabetes and benefit from their experiences.
You can find us on Norfolk Row, entry by the green door next to St Marie's Church and opposite Vero Gusto. The meetings are on the first floor (accessible by lift). Doors are open from 7pm for refreshments and mingling before the meeting starts at 7:30pm. We aim to finish by 9pm!
