2014 Roadshow results
The Diabetes UK Healthy Lifestyle Roadshow 2014 was a huge success; thank you to everyone who came aboard and got involved. With the support of our amazing regional teams and fantastic volunteers we delivered 148 roadshow days across the United Kingdom.
During the 2014 Roadshow season we completed a massive 16,262 risk assessments, which helped to increase understanding of the risk factors and symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. We also referred over 8,000 people who were at ‘high’ or ‘moderate’ risk of having diabetes to their GP for further tests. Our Roadshows are open to anyone affected by diabetes, and we have information at hand about care and support for Type 1, Type 2, or parents of children with diabetes. Our volunteers and staff provided superb support; answering questions and discussing their own experiences living with the condition.
