Trafford health event: 1st July, topic Diabetes – with BSL interpreter

Monthly events

We organise monthly health information events through the Trafford Deaf Advocacy and Wellbeing Service. The aim of the events is to give the Trafford D/deaf community equal access to health information. Examples of other recent topics are Arthritis and Dementia. The talks are presented by organisations who specialise in those health issues. For example, our Dementia event was led by Sue Newsome who is an NHS specialist dementia nurse. The events are BSL interpreted, and you can ask any questions you may have.   

If you would like to attend any of these events, there is no need to book, just turn up on the day. 

For more information about Trafford health events, or to ask us to focus a specific topic please contact our Trafford Advocacy Officer, Tawona Fleming, using SMS/TEL: 07436 236805, or by email.
