Palava Tree Webinar – Diabetes in Times of COVID-19
September 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Save for Later
This session is lead by Pamela Windle and will cover the topic Diabetes in time of COVID-19.
Type 2 diabetes is one of the significant risk factors for contracting COIVD and having a more severe reaction to the virus. Black people are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than any other population.
In this workshop, I’ll be sharing simple tips on how to use nutrition and lifestyle to restore health and to be diabetes-free.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Palava Tree discusses issues around mental health, physical health, community discussions, lifestyle and COVID 19 effects on the community. It is a safe space to speak out, discuss and share experiences and combat isolation.
Activities are designed to gain more information and approach the pandemic through critical reflection and through peer support and discussions. In addition, participants are able to acquire tools and practices to live healthier and more balanced.
The project is created for participants in the Midlands. We are creating safe space for people of African and Caribbean heritage to discuss these topics. Spaces are limited and to confirm your space, we will send you a short survey via email to respond to and instructions to sign up to our online platform.
This project is made possible through funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.
