Diabetes advice

People with diabetes should work and support each other to learn about and help manage their condition, suggested Dr Hisham Maksoud, who was re-elected president of the Mansfield Group of Diabetes UK last week.

Also re-elected were chairman, Val Reeson; secretary, Margaret Jones and treasurer, Deryck Brown, who reported that the Group had donated £1,500 for diabetes research - £1,000 to Nottingham University and £500 to Sheffield University.

Committee members elected were Joyce Plumtree, Pam Reeson, Sheila Brown, Des Downs, Elaine Downs, Maureen Giles and Peter Green.
