People travelled from all over to attend the Diabetes Awareness Morning Tea held by CWA members at the Bogan Gate Hall last week.
President Marion McIntyre welcomed the 30 visitors from Parkes, Forbes, Trundle and Bogan Gate, and extended a special welcome to Dr Madhu Velagala from Dubbo and Esther Krizmancic from Sydney representing Diabetes NSW.
Dr Madhu gave an interesting and thought provoking talk about diabetes, and Esther spoke about the role Diabetes NSW can play in helping people.
Dr Madhu and her assistant Emma Dargin did some blood glucose tests on willing people. The visitors enjoyed a delicious morning tea after getting good glucose results. CWA Bogan Gate was pleased to make a generous donation to Diabetes NSW from the morning tea and Christmas party.
