First Diabetes Wellness meeting for 2023

The first Diabetes Wellness meeting for this year was held on the evening of 8 February. Lisa Luckman, a biokineticist, encouraged us to enjoy a healthy lifestyle in her presentation: Great ways to create a healthy lifestyle in 2023.

We started in the soft light of candles and lanterns until load shedding ended at 8pm. Then we had to endure the harsh lights again, but we also had the benefit of the many ceiling fans.
