a chance to meet others living with it and
with whom you may share interests.
Diabetes UK's CEO, Chris Askew,
says, "In the past when the annual
Professionals Conference has taken
place we have had people with diabetes
ask us if they can attend. Unfortunately,
as iit's been aimed at HCPs and due
to the nature of some of the exhibitors,
there have been legal and other limitations
preventing the public attending. However,
we wanted to work out a way that
the public can gain from the event. By
adding this extra day we have widened
the audience by retaining speakers and
making it into it's own event while using
the richness of the original conference
programme. We hope it will be a very
enjoyable day for all those who attend."
The event is aimed at adults living with
diabetes, or parents of children living with
diabetes. It isn't suitable for children and
there will be no children's programme.
