Lothian Diabetes Representative Group annual conference

By | 17 October, 2012

It’s that time of year again. The leaves turn brown, the rain sets in and the Lothian Diabetes Representative Group has their annual conference in Edinburgh.This year it will be held at the Craiglockhart Campus of Edinburgh Napier University on Saturday 27th October. It’s usually quite an interesting mix of talks, workshops and gossip. There’s also a halfway reasonable lunch chucked in as part of the £10 entrance fee.

Anyway, I’ll be there; so if you’re around Edinburgh then drop in and I’ll see you there. More details on the day and how to book is in the PDF document down there (*points downward and slightly to the left)

      As for lunch – hmm, sounds like its gone downhill. Maybe that was why everyone was so depressed.

          Isn’t that just every diabetes meet up in the world ever? I imagine that when Leonard Thompson and Fred Banting had the first ever diabetes meet up, young Leonard moaned about the quality of the insulin and Banting moaned about these irritating diabetes patients who now had the strength to do things like sit up or move…
