Diabetes and You

Diabetes and You is a free course for people newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or those living with type 2 diabetes who would benefit from healthy lifestyle support to better manage their diabetes.

The course is delivered by trained diabetes educators who will make you feel very welcome.
These sessions can help you to:

  • understand more about type 2 diabetes
  • learn about things you can do to look after yourself and stay healthy
  • meet other people like you, recently diagnosed with diabetes
  • sessions are informal, friendly, and non-judgemental. You can share your experiences and ask questions if you would like to

You will meet other people with diabetes, and you are welcome to bring your partner, friend, or family member with you for support.

Sessions are for those 18 years and over and run over 3 x 90 minute sessions.

Kernow Health run local face-to-face Diabetes and You courses with GP practices around Cornwall as well as offering remote Diabetes and You sessions to offer an alternative for those who cannot attend in person. The remote sessions cover the same information and are also delivered by one of Kernow Healths experienced Diabetes Educators, but the course will be delivered virtually via Microsoft Teams.
