Psychosocial research is critical to every aspect of diabetes care. RAPID is a novel conference to provide a space for collaborative working which will actively involve all stakeholders (including people living with diabetes, early and mid-career researchers, clinicians, senior academics, industry and policy makers).
Thank you for leadership, and all you have done to advance the psychosocial aspects of diabetes (in research and clinical care) and mentor a generation of researchers and health professionals. Congratulations to our founding Chair (1995-2004) on this well-deserved honour. Warm wishes from all your friends and colleagues at the PSAD.
