Cities Changing Diabetes | June 2021 | Sharing knowledge and scaling up action to bend the curve on diabetes
Cities Changing Diabetes is a partnership created to address the social and cultural factors that increase type 2 diabetes vulnerability in urban environments. The partnership is pleased to bring CCD Rounds: a new webinar series for global sharing of best practice and hands-on insight to bend the curve on diabetes. CCD Rounds webinars are an opportunity to learn about diabetes and obesity prevention through real-world examples of health promotion, activities around childhood obesity and best practice policy initiatives.
Tackling the causes of type 2 diabetes & overcoming health inequities with Healthy Goals
Tune in tomorrow (Friday 18 June) from 15:00 –16:00 pm and discover how a sport-and-lifestyle education programme sparked a healthy living movement in a vulnerable community in Leicester, UK. Leicester is home to one of the largest populations of people with diabetes in the country, with around 9 per cent of residents diagnosed with the condition – well above the national average.
Join us to engage with Dr Sophie O’Connell, from the Centre for BME Health, together with Alisson Tripney, from Leicester City in the Community, and learn how Healthy Goals is helping people sustainably improve their wellbeing. The programme has built enthusiastic support among the city’s South Asian society and has leveraged the city’s pride in its home football team to reach an underserved group with practical, fun and educational sessions over a twelve-week programme (Source: Cities Changing Diabetes)
