Volunteers needed for diabetes roadshows
DIABETES UK is looking for volunteers to help find some of the 6,800 people in Wiltshire whose health is threatened by undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes.
The charity is recruiting volunteers to assess members of the public for their risk of developing the condition and to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle in reducing that risk at roadshows being held next month.
Graham Cooper, Diabetes UK South West Regional Manager said: “Risk assessments are a vital part of our work to encourage early diagnosis in order to help people avoid the devastating consequences of undiagnosed diabetes. Diabetes UK provides all the necessary training and our roadshows are great events to be involved with.”
Full training will be provided for volunteers who commit to at least one roadshow. The Salisbury event will be on October 17.
