Visitors to the Forum on Wednesday can find out more about diabetes, its causes and consequences at an information being hosted by Norfolk's biggest hospital.
Diabetes experts from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital have organised an information and awareness day at which members of the public can ask for advice on any diabetes-related topics – from diet and weight management to stopping smoking and foot health.
The event, which runs from 10am until 4pm, will also feature a range of staffed stands where people can find out more about diabetes.
Organisations represented include the NNUH, Diabetes UK, Active Norfolk, Smokefree Norfolk, Patient Supporters and Champions, and NNUH eye screening, as well as dieticians offering health advice.
New health advice films for patients with Type 2 diabetes will be shown at the event and have also been made available online.
