Next Group Meeting December 17th

 

The next meeting of the Coventry Diabetes UK Group is being held on the 17th December 2018 from 7:30-9pm at the Salvation Army, Upper Well Street, Coventry. 

We welcome everyone to our Christmas Social. This meeting has a relaxed atmosphere with everyone bringing along food to share. Our guest speaker tonight is Dr Timothy Robbins. He is a clinical research fellow in diabetes and endocrinology, working at University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust and The Institute of Digital Healthcare at The University of Warwick. During his research he has visited the USA to explore US approaches to digital diabetes care and health data research. He is passionate about the involvement of people with diabetes in research and in the implementation of new digital health processes. He will discuss how people with diabetes can become involved in both research and digital health projects, as well as sharing his learning from the USA and his own research into avoiding hospital admissions for people with diabetes.

Refreshments will be available and we will also be holding our usual raffle with donated prizes. This raises vital funds to support the groups community work. Our meeting dates for 2019 will also be available, for those of you wanting to get ahead with planning for next year.
