About Diabetes Scotland - Making Change Happen

Diabetes Scotland is hosting the Making Change Happen event on Saturday (March 30th) following on from the success of patient-supported campaigns, like its Flash Glucose campaign, which has meant life-changing tech being rolled out across Scotland.

With almost 300,000 people living with diabetes in Scotland and over 500,000 at risk of developing Type 2, the condition is the defining health crisis of our time.

And according to the latest figures (Scottish Diabetes Survey 2017) there are 64,090 people diagnosed with diabetes in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, of which 6,390 (10%) are Type 1 diabetes and 56,854 (89%) are Type 2 diabetes. In addition, it is estimated there are an additional 6,000 undiagnosed cases of Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes Scotland believes grassroots action is vital to making change happen and its new series of events aims to show how we can make a positive difference together.

The Diabetes in Scotland – Making Change Happen event takes place this Saturday (30 March 2019), starting at 1.30pm, in the Touchbase Business Centre, Sense Scotland, 43 Middlesex Street, Glasgow.

Anyone wishing to come along to the Glasgow event should to let Diabetes Scotland know in advance by contacting organiser Linda McGlynn on 0141 245 6380, or email linda.mcglynn@diabetes.org.uk

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Diabetes Scotland - Making Change Happen are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
