TAD Talk 2017

Our second TAD talk event was held in London in April 2017 with talks from six more inspirational speakers. This year we also hosted our first TADpole event for 8-12 year olds which ran in parallel to the TAD talks.

TAD talk 2017 was chaired by Stephen Dixon, a Sky news presenter who currently anchors the Sunrise breakfast programme. He's been living with T1D for 25 years and is an advocate of self-management, tied in with the latest technology. Stephen sees living with T1D as a positive part of life and firmly believes in getting better results by working with it, rather than fighting against it.

The day started with an opening welcome address from Professor Sir Bruce Keogh who is NHS England's Medical Director and professional lead for NHS doctors. He is responsible for promoting clinical leadership, quality and innovation. Formerly, Sir Bruce had a distinguished career in surgery. He has served as a Commissioner on the Commission for Health Improvement (CHI) and the Healthcare Commission and was knighted for services to medicine in 2003.

TAD Talk 2016

The first TAD talk was held in London in March 2016. We had seven fantastic speakers and the event was chaired by the BBC journalist and broadcaster Justin Webb who leads a successful career presenting the Today Programme on Radio Four. Justin has personal experience of caring for a family member with Type 1 diabetes. Seven years ago his son was diagnosed with T1D at the age of nine and Justin shared his experience from the parent’s perspective.
