Help for diabetes patients' parents.
A CHARITY is helping answer the questions of parents of children with diabetes next month.
The charity Diabetes UK Cymru is running the event with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in St George Hotel, Llandudno, on Saturday, November 28.
The free event, which runs from 10am until 3pm, will feature talks from diabetes experts, including Prof Neil Hanley on JDRF research and Professor Rayaz Malik on diabetic neuropathy.
Dr Llinos Haf Spencer will be talking about the EPIC project which aims to create a new information pack for children diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
After giving their presentations the speakers will answer questions from parents.
Dai Williams, National Director of Diabetes UK Cymru, said: "We are delighted to be working with the JDRF to host the parent event.
"It is a fantastic opportunity for parents of children with diabetes in North Wales to learn more about diabetes and the research into the condition."
Earlier this month, X Factor winner Alexandra Burke, whose mother has Type 2 diabetes, called on young people with diabetes to join Diabetes UK's campaign to get their views heard by politicians.. To book a place at the Llandudno event, ring Diabetes UK Cymru on 029 2066 8276 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before November 13.
