Updates: Coronavirus and diabetes
Facilitated by Caroline Walker, a member of our team who also has type 1, the sessions are set to run for 6 weeks and can include up to 12 participants.
Each session will be an hour long and start at 7pm. They will offer participants the chance to share and learn from others with the condition, and discuss issues such as food, treatment and emotional health.
This is a pilot scheme and going forward, we hope to be able to offer the same support to people with type 2 diabetes in the area.
George Elokobi, 34, now lives with his young family in Essex and wants to share his passion for healthy living, emotional well-being and overcoming obstacles to support and inspire people living with diabetes.
George (pictured) has enjoyed an illustrious professional career which has included playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premiership and Colchester United. He is currently captain at Maidstone United, where he is also an academy coach.
