Vijay Patel Building, Lecture Theatre 4.05, De Montfort Uni

Event duration: 60 minutes 


Diabetes is having a huge impact on people’s health in the UK. In 2019, 350 million people of working age had diabetes, this number is expected to rise to over four million by 2030. 

A large part of the growing issue is a lack of awareness about what causes it, how to manage it, and what support is out there to help with both these things. 

Randolph Arroo and Ketan Ruparelia from De Montfort University will bring together a panel of experts and people with lived experience of diabetes to discuss how they’re managing the condition and the new research that is tackling this silent pandemic.
