Diabetes UK Awards Ceremony4th February 2020
Diabetes UK awards a selection of medals in recognition of the courage and perseverance of living with Type 1 diabetes for over 50, 60 and 70 years.
Approximately 8% of people are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the UK. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition which leads to the destruction of the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Treatment requires insulin to be administered daily by injection or insulin pump..
Theses medals represent the founding fathers of Diabetes UK, Alan Nebarro for 50 years, the Robert Lawrence Medal for 60 years and the John Macleod Medal for 70 years living with Type 1 diabetes.
On this fantastic achievement we would like to congratulate;
Stephen Lowry, Victor Ringland, Linda Stevenson, William Twigg and Fergus Keeling on receiving the Alan Nebarro Medal
Margaret Toleraton on receiving the Robert Lawrence Medal
Ivan Crawford on receiving the John Macleod Medal.
