Official logoThe East Midlands Diabetes Prevention Week, which is taking place from January 16 to 22, has been set up to raise awareness of the growing Type 2 diabetes epidemic in the region.

The aim is to get people and healthcare professionals talking about the condition and understanding who is at risk.

Once those who are in danger of developing Type 2 diabetes have been identified they will be referred onto the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme, which provides people with bespoke and tailored lifestyle advice.

Together we can tackle Type 2 #no2diabetes
