Diabetes group in need of volunteers

The next meeting of Wellingborough Diabetes Group is tomorrow (Friday) at 3pm at Isebrook Hospital, Wellingborough.

There will be two guest speakers, Jane Draper, who will talk about the role of a support worker, and Lorraine Wensor, who will talk about oral medicines, old and new and injectable therapies for Type 2 diabetes.

The Wellingborough section of the Diabetes UK roadshow will be on Thursday and Friday, April 16-17, and the Wellingborough group is looking for volunteers.

The group needs six volunteers each day to be risk assessors and event volunteers. The group will be at the roadshow from 9am to 5pm on the Thursday and from 9am to 4.30pm on the Friday. A one-day training course will be available for risk assessors on Thursday, March 12, in Walsall. Travelling expenses will be paid.

Anyone interested in being a volunteer is asked to email wellingboroughdiabetesgroup.yahoo.co.uk before Saturday, February 28.
