Podcast series: Together on health in Tingbjerg

The risk of developing diabetes and other chronic diseases are significantly higher in socially disadvantaged neighborhoods than in other areas.

In this podcast series, we learn more about some of the many projects and activities in Tingbjerg Changing Diabetes which are focusing on resident-involving prevention and health interventions.

These interventions are made to improve the social life, the fellowship and the health of residents in Tingbjerg.

Food communities in Tingbjerg

In this episode we participate at a food courses for families. The course is a collaboration between Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen, Copenhagen Hospitality College and Tingbjerg Forum.

We explore how you as a professional health-agent can help promote health and well-being among residents in a socially disadvantaged neighborhood by cooperating with professional actors working in the area, and not the least, by involving the residents in planning activities based on their interests and resources.
