A new research project aims to increase the physical activity levels of people with type-two diabetes.

People living with type-two diabetes are being invited to take part in a research project designed to increase their physical activity levels.

It is being led by Professor Sandra MacRury, of the University of the Highlands and Islands, in partnership with NHS Highland and High Life Highland.

The aim is to find an alternative approach to deliver education and support to aid lifestyle changes to the growing number of people living with type-two diabetes in the region especially in geographically-challenging areas.

The pilot study plans to develop a web-based educational tool kit which can be successfully integrated into a community setting.

It is searching for men and women aged 18-75 to take part.

For details, email daniel.crabtree@uhi.ac.uk, call 01463 279405 or call Prof MacRury on 01463 279583.
