Northampton Area Group: Newsletter April 2016

April 12

Liz Robinson, Senior Diabetes Dietitian is retiring from the hospital in May. She has been very supportive of our Group for many years both at meetings and Diabetes Open Days – she always has the longest queue. Liz has very kindly agreed to speak at one more meeting for us and that will be on Tuesday, April 12th, 7.30pm in the Cripps Postgraduate Medical Centre, Northampton General Hospital so please come along and help make it a  special evening.  Liz’s presentations are always very interesting. We thank her for the many hours she has given helping people to learn how to enjoy food and live with Diabetes over the years and we wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement.  Hope to see you for ‘Food and Diabetes’ on 12 April.
