Judges announced for DPC Industry Awards
An all-star panel has been announced to judge an awards programme geared up to recognise excellence in the diabetes industry.
The judging panel boasts a wide range of skills, experiences and expertise from the diabetes community. It comprises:
- Sarah Bone, Chief Executive, Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF)
- Emma Clayton, Managing Director, Grey Bear Consultancy
- Oliver Jelley, Editor, The Diabetes Times
- Abigail Kitt, Quality Improvement Lead (Diabetes), NHS England – South East Clinical Networks
- Dr David Lipscomb, Consultant Endocrinologist, Sussex Community Foundation NHS Trust
- Dr Dinesh Nagi, Chair of the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) and Consultant in Diabetes & Endocrinology at Pinderfields Hospital, Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust in Wakefield
The awards have been launched by the UK’s biggest conference and exhibition for healthcare professionals working in diabetes to showcase success and innovation shown bycompanies from the pharmaceutical, medical device and life sciences industries working in diabetes care.
Last week, due to demand, the deadline was extended to June 8 to allow companies more time to enter. The ceremony will take place in London during DPC2018 on the evening of Wednesday, November 14, to mark World Diabetes Day.
DPC founder Maggie Meer said: “We are proud to be working in such a pioneering and innovative industry and have launched these awards to recognise excellence in diabetes care. We recognise that these organisations play a crucial role in developing and providing products, services and research that enable people with diabetes to have better outcomes.”
DPC launched in 2015 and last year attracted a record 3,235 delegates. The free-to-attend, CPD-accredited event is for healthcare professionals involved in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes, and its related conditions. Registration is open for DPC2018, which takes place at Olympia London on November 14 and 15.
