Know the score - Community Speakers presentation
Every day 60 Queenslanders are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Complications can include heart disease, stroke, kidney problems,
blindness and amputation. The good news is type 2 diabetes can
often be prevented or delayed.
Know the score is a FREE program for Queensland
community groups and workplaces designed to raise awareness of type
2 diabetes across Queensland.
Delivered by trained volunteers, the presentation covers
information about type 2 diabetes, the risk factors
and related complications and ways the condition can often be
prevented through healthy eating and physical activity.
