Diabetes UK Professional Conference: Twitter 'must follows'

Unless you've been stranded at sea for the last month, you will have felt the growing buzz of excitement around the DUK professionals conference taking place this Wednesday and Thursday in Liverpool.  Think all the big movers and shakers in pharmaceutical companies, healthcare professionals, advocacy and DUK representatives all under one roof, exploring D-topics from A to Z.  

Sadly, after three invites to the conference swooped in at too-late a stage to register as press, meaning a 10-hour round trip for a one-hour talk, I won't be able to go this year.  But what I will be doing instead is staying glued to Twitter where I have it on good authority there will be a group of everyone's favourite bloggers and D-advocates. 

So if like me you weren't able to wangle a way in, keep completely up-to-date on what's happening by following these Twitter peeps, who will be at the conference and tweeting as it happens. 

Twitterererers are...

Lesley at InPuT (T1 herself and chairman of a charity advocating for access to diabetes medical technology)
Annabel at Understudy Pancreas (mum of a proper-cool chick with T1 and blogger extraordinnaire)
Chris, aka Grumpy Pumper  (Grumpy bloke with T1)
Laura at Ninjabetic  (20-something T1 Ninja with advocacy running through her veins)
Paul at T1HbA1c and GBDoc (GBDoc creator and all round energetic T1 champion)

And the hashtag to follow is #DPC14!

  1. They definitely deserve applause for the nice selection of bread and the service which was good from start to finish. The mass produced filet was too good.
