DRWF are delighted to be returning to Hartlepool for the 9th annual Diabetes Wellness Day North on Saturday, 9th November 2019.

Join DRWF and the specialist diabetes teams from North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust, the University Hospital of Hartlepool and Hartlepool Borough Council at this Quality in Care Diabetes award winning event.
Once again the Diabetes Wellness Day North will take place in November to coincide with World Diabetes Day. This special day is celebrated worldwide each year and engages millions of people in raising diabetes awareness. World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and World Health Organisation. In 2007 it became an official United Nations day. The date of 14th November for World Diabetes Day was chosen to recognise the birthday of Frederick Banting, who along with Charles Best, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922.

The Diabetes Wellness Day North will bring together a wealth of information under one roof for people living with all forms of Diabetes. Family members, friends and carers and those with an interest in diabetes are also encouraged to take part. The day will provide you with the tools, knowledge and practical skills needed to improve life with diabetes and the keys to healthier living. The day is designed to ensure all participants have the opportunity to raise their questions, share their experiences and enjoy the support of a friendly, like-minded diabetes community in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
