Know Your Risk Training completed

Know Your Risk Training completed

This week a group of volunteers from the Exeter group completed the Diabetes UK 'Know Your Risk' training. Gemma and Verity from the regional office in Taunton came down to give a very interesting and informative training session. We learnt how to carry out 'Know Your Risk' sessions which will allow people to find out their risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. 

For more information about the 'Know Your Risk' calculator please see the Diabetes UK website 

If your local group or company would be interested in hosting a 'Know your Risk' event, please do get in contact with us

Hopefully alterting people of their risk of developing diabetes in the next 10 years will allow them to make lifestyle changes to reduce their risk. In cases where people find they are already at high risk, they can be referred to their GP.
