OUR BACKGROUND

The DESMOND Programme began life in 2003 as a group education programme for people newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Since then the team of NHS researchers have gone on to develop a number of other education programmes including Healthier You.

This same team has now developed this eLearning programme to support people identified as beign at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes who are regular users of the internet. We hope you like it!
