Black History Month Webinar: Diabetes and Health Inequalities

Diabetes UK London Region is hosting a free webinar on Diabetes and Health Inequalities for Black History Month on Thursday 21 October, from 5-6pm.

The guest speaker will be Dr Louise Goff from King’s College London, who researches ethnic inequalities in type 2 diabetes. She will talk about her recent work on a culturally tailored support programme for Black-African and Black-Caribbean communities. Louise is a nutritionist and her research career over the last 20 years has focused on the role of nutrition in the development, prevention and management of type 2 diabetes.

 

Louise leads a programme of research focused on improving health for UK African & Caribbean communities. She has worked extensively with these communities to understand the differences in the biological mechanisms by which diabetes develops in African and Caribbean groups, and to develop culturally-tailored interventions to promote diabetes self-management.

If you would like to register for the webinar, please go to the Eventbrite website.
