DSN Forum becomes supporting organisation for Action4Diabetes

The DSN Forum UK were asked to work with Action4Diabetes charity as a supporting organisation and of course we said yes! It is a charity close to our hearts and does some amazing work across South East Malaysia where access to healthcare is a huge challenge. The charity helps fund insulin supplies for children and young people with type 1 diabetes without which the outcome would be fatal. We cannot wait to start work to help ensure that the type 1 community have equal access to healthcare, insulin supplies and education across South East Asia.

Team Diabetes 101 Launches NEW Website

On 11/1/2021 the Diabetes 101 Team launched their new website. At a time of more anxiety amongst the diabetes online community entering the 2nd week of COVID-19 lockdown number 3, there was no better time to collate all of the resources and education that the team have put together since March 2020. Helpful for both people living with diabetes and their families along with any HCP's working in diabetes care.
