Launch of the IDF Europe Centenary ofInsulin Campaign: Imagining the Next 100Years of Diabetes
Watch the webinar

To mark the beginning of the Centenary of Insulin campaign, we hosted our first webinar titled ‘Imagining the next 100 years of diabetes’, on 22 January 2021. The webinar kicked off with video testimonials from people living with diabetes across Europe who shared their experiences, hopes, and dreams for the future. It then focused on developments in terms of new medicines and advances in therapies and technologies which have the potential to make a significant impact on the way people living with diabetes manage their condition. After a quick look back at the progress made over the past 100 years, the webinar looked at possible future solutions for the next 100 years and ended with a call to action on what is required to further support research and innovation.
