Since my last posting things have certainly been moving. I attended and spoke at Swrajit Sarkars first ‘Living with Diabetes’ event held on Saturday 31st May, at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), Preston.
A very successful event, Swrajit with an alliance with UCLan are planning to make this an annual event on behalf of the ‘Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation’. There was a lot of interest via my website as in email inquiries, I promise that I will promote the Event via my site, next year nearer the time.
The previous day I appeared in the Lancashire Evening Post, Practice Management Magazine had asked for an article and it was suggested I sent it to all the Press contacts I have, and so gaining my 15 minutes of fame.
From this Press Release, I was invited to speak on BBC Radio Lancashire and I did that yesterday, on The Morning Show. I sound like a runaway train only accessible via bbciplayer for the next 6 days.
The link, lasts for about 6 minutes in all.
As well as promoting myself and the business, I had the great privilege to attend a lecture given by Professor Bryan Frier, regarding ‘Hypoglycaemia’ (low blood sugars) at Ewood Park, Blackburn last Thursday, I have to admit to being in seventh heaven and as usual came away with my head buzzing.
The most loveliest of knock on events from my “fame”, has been coming into contact with previous patients. One lady rang my office and the other wrote a small testimonial on my ABC blog. People are very kind and it is appreciated.
I have also realised a few areas of updates which I can write more about, the importance of foot care, understanding eye terminology, ‘hypo’s, driving and the DVLA’.
At the moment its all swirling in my head but I promise to be more regular with my blog.
Take care till next time.
