Our Group's 50th Anniversary!

Our Group celebrated its 50th Anniversary at a meeting on Tuesday 5th March 2019.
The evening had a very full agenda. It started with two Nabarro medal presentations, and the presentation of the inaugural "Sandra Attwood 'Supporting Others' in Northampton" award to Eileen Richardson (Diabetes Specialist Nurse at NGH). We held a brief A.G.M., before retired Diabetes Consultants from NGH (and former Presidents of our Group), Dr. Charles Fox and Dr. Anne Kilvert, gave a very interesting talk about "How Diabetes care has changed over the last 50 years", and interlinked it with information about our Group. It was fascinating to see old photographs and news clippings about our Group's foundation in 1969, and to hear about its many achievements and successes over the past 50 years.
We finished the evening with food and an anniversary cake.
The evening was a great success, and the Committee would like to extend its thanks to everyone who came along to celebrate with us.
