Leicester programme hits the news
The launch event attracted the attention of local media, which ran the story about Leicester joining the global programme on BBC East Midlands Tonight.
The Leicester Mercury also ran the story, helping to give the partnership great coverage and those already involved a tremendous boost.
It was big news that Leicester has now officially become the only UK city to join the global Cities Changing Diabetes campaign, developed to raise awareness of and prevent type 2 diabetes.
Leicester's involvement in the worldwide programme was made official at a launch event on Tuesday, May 1 at the City Hall between noon and 4pm.
