York Festival of Ideas 2023
Monday 12 June 2023, 2pm to 3pm
If you're free on Monday 12th June come along to the fabulous "York Festival of Ideas" event about Reimagining Healthcare: Treating the body and mind at King's Manor, York.
Our very own Claire Carswell will be chairing a panel discussion to hear from people with lived experience of severe mental illness and chronic conditions - service users, carers and healthcare professionals - and to find out how and why our healthcare system needs to change. Panellists will include members of DIAMONDS Voice.

DIAMONDS Programme Manager, Jen Brown presented at the York Biomedical Research Institute and the Institute of Mental Health Research at York's event on Biomedical Research and Neuroscience applied to mental health
Jen discussed the challenges and opportunities for using biomedical data in applied healthcare research. Her presentation focused on the use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for people who have severe mental illness and type two diabetes. She highlighted some key findings and plans from her PhD research, including how the CGM monitors were seen as a helpful reminder for participants about their diabetes, and how future research could work with service users to ensure that people can receive personalised and accessible information about their own health.
