Experts gather for Diabetes UK Professional Conference in London
The very latest diabetes research will be unveiled at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference (DUKPC) in London this week.

Experts, researchers and healthcare professionals from around the world are set to attend the three-day event between 14-16 March, which takes place at ExCel (Exhibition Centre London).

The DUKPC provides all those working within the diabetes sector the opportunity to attend inspiring talks, share good practice and network with peers and colleagues.

Exhibitors will also be showcasing the latest products, services and technologies that are currently available in diabetes care and practical workshops will be held across the three days to give delegates the chance to expand their skill set.

Among this year's speakers include Andrew Hattersley, Professor of Molecular Medicine, University of Exeter, who will discuss the importance of precise diagnosis of the subtype of diabetes, while Naveed Sattar, Professor of Metabolic Medicine, University of Glasgow will be speaking about nutrition, obesity and diabetes.

A spokesperson for the event said: "Our multi-disciplinary programme brings healthcare professionals from all disciplines together under one roof, ranging from primary to secondary care, podiatry, pediatrics and dietetics.

"With the latest research at the heart of the conference programme, you'll leave with the most current diabetes knowledge and also get access to unrivalled opportunities to network with peers, colleagues, and specialists from all over the world. You'll also earn CPD points for attending, and get professional recognition for what you've learnt."

This year, conference organisers have launched the DUKPC Insider event for the first time, a one-day event that brings all the highlights from the event straight to people with diabetes.

This will take place on the Saturday, after the official conference has finished, and is open to members of the public and children who are affected by diabetes. For £10 attendees can hear leading experts talk about the latest diabetes developments, research and treatments.
