"Know Your Risk" initiative

With the growing concern over the increased incidence of Type 2 Diabetes in the UK, Volunteer Groups have been encouraged to set up their own "Know Your Risk" initiatives. Four members of our group have undergone training in assessing the risk of this condition and received competency certificates from Diabetes UK.
With a generous donation from Daventry Rotary Club we will be able to purchase the equipment necessary and will be asking local organisations to express an interest in our team visiting them to carry out assessments on interested members.
The actual procedure involves height, weight and waist measurements together with a questionnaire on life style and diet. There are no intrusive examinations required!
From this data the team will be able to assess your risk and suggest that you visit your GP surgery if appropriate.
Should you know if any group who would be interested, please contact us using the website contact details.
