The first part recognises initiatives for the educational needs of healthcare professionals s to advance skills and knowledge to support effective and efficient management of people with diabetes. The second part celebrates initiatives to educate and empower people with diabetes and/or their families and carers to self-manage and stay as healthy as possible.
The awards ceremony will take place at Sanofi’s Reading headquarters on Thursday, October 17, 2019.
