DESMOND is a structured group education programme designed to increase your knowledge of type 2 diabetes. The course will also help you to develop the skills to effectively self-manage your condition.
People with either a new diagnosis or established type 2 diabetes can attend the course.
DESMOND is delivered by two trained educators and is supported by specifically designed resources.
Our well-established DESMOND team forms part of the wider Nutrition & Dietetic department. The team includes:
Dietitians from across the department also deliver sections of the course. We’re dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic, which is reflected throughout our DESMOND delivery and is key to our success.
