Diabetes Events: Autumn 2023

  • 2 min read

Below are some of the opportunities this autumn to educate yourself, get better informed and meet others with diabetes, whether virtual or in person.

Some of these are free, others have a small charge. International conferences can require considerable expense although many advocates attend these on the basis of being sponsored to do so, sometimes paid-for by medtech companies. Advance registration is usually required.
