About 600 Deniliquin people who suffer from the disease were all invited to diabetes workshops in Deniliquin last Thursday and Friday.
The Australian Diabetes Council hosted the workshops, which were aimed at connecting local people with diabetes with the services available locally.
Diabetes educator Mark Taylor, who is based in Wagga, said sufferers were invited to the Thursday forum to hear from a range of health professionals.
On Friday, staff working with elderly diabetes sufferers were encouraged to learn more about the disease and how to care for clients with diabetes.
‘‘The main thing is for people to gain education in caring for their diabetes, and to link these people with their health services in the region,’’ Mr Taylor said.
The workshops were held at the Deniliquin RSL Club.
