During the pandemic, these teams have created educational diabetes programmes, virtual training schemes and diabetes-related apps to enhance the quality of life for people living with the condition.
Taking place on Thursday, October 14, this year’s awards will celebrate the exceptional work undertaken during the unprecedented pressure of COVID-19.
The awards will be handed out during a ceremony at Sanofi’s Reading headquarters, with the event also being livestreamed online.
