DPC applauds show sponsors for ‘making it happen’
“Gratitude and appreciation” must be given to all sponsors of the UK’s largest free CPD-accredited conference for healthcare professionals, according to organisers.
Diabetes Professional Care 2019 (DPC2019) gives all healthcare professionals from the entire multi-disciplinary team (MDT) the opportunity to learn from the UK’s foremost diabetes experts, practitioners and policy makers, completely free of charge
Support and innovation from the industry’s leading diabetes solution providers has enabled DPC organisers to create an accessible event which gives attendees real-world learning and skills to improve the standard of care and prevent serious complications for people living with diabetes.
For the fourth year running, DPC is kindly supported by global healthcare company Novo Nordisk. A Diamond sponsor, the pharmaceutical giant is once again supporting the unique Hypo Simulation station which has been hugely popular in recent years. The VR headsets will allow healthcare professionals to experience what it’s like to have a hypoglycaemic event (hypo).
Abbott, best known for the pioneering FreeStyle Libre, has also supported the show since inception. Last year at DPC2018, the company hit the headlines for announcing it would ensure everyone with diabetes would have access to the device.
This year Abbott is a Platinum sponsor, along with Mylan, which provides seven billion people with access to high quality medicine.
The leading supplier of quality, cost-effective diabetes management solutions, GlucoRx, is a gold sponsor this year. The company has also supported the revamped show app which has been designed to make users create their own personalised schedule for both days.
Takeda, Insulet and Urgo are also Gold sponsors at this year’s two-day show which has out grown its previous hall at London Olympia, moving to a much larger room this October.
BD is a Silver sponsor this year and registered charity Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) is supporting registration.
The sponsor for this year’s Diabetes Village will be announced in a few weeks, along more exciting plans for the central networking and meeting area. Owen Mumford has supported this year’s lanyard.
Maggie Meer, who launched DPC in 2015, said: “DPC is the only free CPD-accredited conference for healthcare professionals involved in diabetes care. Each and every attendee is able to gain essential skills and knowledge that they can take away and share with their colleagues.
“Without our sponsors we would not be able to host the show, which last year attracted a record number of 4,195 visitors. As a team we want to show our gratitude and appreciation to all our sponsors who have helped us grow and continue to provide healthcare professionals with real-world education to help them deliver the best possible care to people with diabetes.”
