Consultants, diabetes specialist nurses and hospital clinicians are being encouraged to sign up for a national event which is set to celebrate 100 years since insulin was first administered to a person.
The Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) is hosting the two-day meeting to mark a century of insulin, which is a milestone moment in the history of diabetes.
Insulin was first used in the treatment of diabetes on January 11, 1992, when it was administered to 14-year-old Leonard Thompson, who had diabetes and was dying at the Toronto General Hospital in Canada.
The 100 years event will be held on Monday, July 4 and Tuesday, July 5, after it was postponed last month.
Limited spaces for an optional drinks reception and dinner on July 4 is also available at an additional cost.
To attend the event, register here.
