11.11-13.11 2010 TAMK participated in a World Diabetes day event organised in Nizhni Novgorod. The organiser was the Nizhny Novgorod Diabetic League.
The event was organised in The Puppet Theatre in two floors. It was aimed at both experts and patients. In conjunction with the event, patient consultations and discussion opportunities were organised for the experts of the Diabetes forum.
TAMK’s themes at the event were safety as well as the prevention and treatment of diabetes. The visitors were especially interested in the diabetes risk tests, information about foot care, fall prevention and the presentation of TAMK’s ITSE-space.
During the visitation, the discussions also covered developing collaboration and future project opportunities. The collaboration partners included representatives from Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy, Nizhny Novgorod State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, classic university, Continuing Education Centre for Health Care Specialists, Nizhny Novgorod Diabetic League and the city hospital.
Taking part in Nizhni Novgorod was Annikki Mattila, senior lecturer from the School of Business and Services, who initiated discussions about the collaboration with the department of tourism and service at Nizhny Novgorod State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering. This visitation produced an agreement suggestion for teacher exchange.
