With access to online content and social media, people with diabetes can play an important role in managing their own condition as well as informing others. How can these ‘super patients’ improve and share their skills and knowledge better?

The objective of this faculty is to empower people with diabetes and their network of friends and relatives to become leaders in disease awareness and a force for change in confronting the outstanding challenges facing diagnosis and care.

The action plan for this faculty is under discussion. If you would like to participate in its formulation, consider joining our next event.
