The DESMOND programme is a group education programme designed for people with Type 2 diabetes, newly diagnosed and on going.
Our courses are designed to be flexible to suit you. We offer either one full day session or two half day sessions on a variety of days, times and venues. Our friendly and approachable course educators are experienced in delivering health and lifestyle courses for people with Type 2 diabetes.
On this course, you will have access to your own personal nutritional expert and health coach. We also send you a wearable fitness tracker, a set of wireless weighing scales, a nutritional handbook and a recipe book in the post. OurPath can help you to learn more about diabetes and support you to build healthier habits, focusing on improving your nutrition, exercise, sleep, energy levels, stress-management and mindset.
We know that heart disease is a complication of diabetes, and therefore affects people with Type 1.
“Whilst I was a little apprehensive about going to a group course, I found hearing about diabetes with others who were like me was really helpful. Lots of what I learnt I was able to do straight away. I’m so glad I went. ”
