Have your say

The people of Ballymena are invited to a Healthy Lifestyle Roadshow later this month where they will find out if they are at risk of Type 2 diabetes and get valuable information about diet and physical activity.

The roadshow, run by Diabetes UK in partnership with Bupa, will be visiting the Tesco Superstore on Larne Road Link on Tuesday, July 29, to offer a quick and confidential assessment so that people can find out if they may have, or are at risk of developing, Type 2 diabetes.

Last year, roadshow buses travelled the country and saw almost 20,000 people step on board to find out their risk and discuss healthy lifestyle options.
