THE Tavyside Patients Association is hosting a presentation by Professor Ann Millward from the Diabetes Clinical Research Unit in Plymouth on the subject of diabetes.

The talk, entitled 'Diabetes, Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment' will take place in the conference centre at Tavyside Health Centre, in Abbey Rise, Tavistock on Thursday, March 27 at 2pm.

The event will last for about an hour, plus time for questions and refreshments. It is for anyone to attend, not just Tavyside patients, and will be free, although donations to cover the cost of refreshments would be welcome.

Anyone who is concerned about diabetes, especially type two diabetes and would like to learn how to avoid becoming a victim of the disease, can call 01822 613517 to book a place.
