Special Event | Pre-Diabetes: The Silent Condition

Event Date: February 19, 2020, 7:00 pm

Join us for this special event!

Pre-diabetes is a silent condition, with one in three people unaware that they have it.

Left unmanaged, this can lead to serious health issues.

If you have a family history of diabetes, the National Institute of Integrative Medicine is holding a special event where we will share important information; provide a free blood sugar test; and present the opportunity to participate in a study to determine the effectiveness of a herbal formula.

Event program:

  • Special lecture by diabetes expert Dr Kevin Lee
  • Information about The Pre-Diabetes Trial at NIIM by AProf Dr Karin Ried
  • Q & A session with panel Dr Lee, AProf Ried & Nikolaj Travica
  • Free blood sugar testing

WHEN: Wednesday 19 Feb 2020 7.00pm – 8.30pm

NIIM Lecture Theatre
Level 3, 21 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria 3122
