Come down and visit the Diabetes UK roadshow in Leicester on Sunday 14 September. The huge pink lorry will be in the town centre from 11am to 6pm and anyone is welcome to drop in.
Free diabetes screening will be available at the roadshow throughout the day. Diabetes UK staff, including a Care Advisor and local healthcare professionals will be available throughout the day to provide information and support to anyone affected by diabetes.
“This is a great opportunity for us to promote our Measure Up campaign which aims to identify all those who have Type 2 diabetes and don't know it. Early diagnosis is essential so people can start managing their diabetes to reduce the risk of complications like heart disease, blindness and strokes developing,” said Julie Orrey, Regional Manager for the East Midlands.
“It’s also a great opportunity for local people with diabetes, or with family and friends with diabetes to get more information. I would encourage as many people as possible to drop in.”
