Diabetes UK’s North of England team will present an online session packed with useful information about the basics of getting more active later this month.

The Diabetes and Moving More webinar will take place on Tuesday 29 September from 8pm-9.15pm.

It is free to register and is for anyone living with diabetes, anyone caring for someone with diabetes or anyone at risk of developing diabetes. It is open to people from all regions and nations of the UK, not just those living in the North of England, and there will be advice for people of all fitness levels, from beginners to people who exercise regularly.

The session will feature talks from Neil Gibson, Physical Activity Insight Advisor at Diabetes UK, and George West, a Sheffield-based Diabetes UK speaker and volunteer living with type 1 diabetes.

Neil’s talk will include myth-busting, top tips, and practical ideas and suggestions around getting more active. George will give a personal perspective on living with diabetes, touching on some of the mental barriers that commonly prevent people with the condition from exercising more.

There will be a Q&A with Neil and George following their presentations.

The event will be run on the video conference platform Zoom and you will be sent a link once you sign up and register.
