Conference Speakers

We feel we have an impressive line up of speakers for Thrive-abetes. They are;
  • Kate & Isobel Fazakerley, Mum to Isobel who was diagnosed when she was two years old and is Chair of the Families with Diabetes National Network UK.
  • Helena Farrell, the founder of a diabetes self-management education (DSME) service called; Diabetes Insight. She is also a registered General Nurse, has a diploma in Psychotherapy from Institute of Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy in 2001, and has a MSc in Diabetes, University of Warwick, 2013.
  • Dr. Kevin MooreClinical Director of Naas Hospital and consultant endocrinologist in Tallaght Hospital, will be joining us at Thrive-abetes. Kevin has been making occasional guest appearances at the Type 1 Diabetes Support group meetings in Dublin for a number of years. I feel that it says a lot when a group keeps asking you to return.
  • Dr. Claire McVicker is the Director of Research Advocacy, at the type 1 diabetes research charity, JDRF in the United Kingdom. JDRF is the world’s leading charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research and its vision is a world without type 1 diabetes.
  • Kevin McMahon is the co-author of "Sugar Surfing; How to manage type 1 diabetes in a modern world" with his long time friend Stephen W. Ponder, MD CDE, which was published in May of this year.
