2013 Annual Conference - Thursday 9th May 2013

It is now 10 years since the Diabetes Education Network (Originally the Type 1 Education network) was formed. Over the last decade we have seen many changes, not only in technology but also in the way diabetes management is approached and taught.

For 2013 we returned to Birmingham once again in association with Diabetes UK and once again sponsored with an unrestricted educational grant by Roche Diabetes Care. Thank you's to both.

So to celebrate 10 years we want to reminisce on some of the highlights of the last decade, but we are also looking forward to the next 10 years.
