The European Diabetes Leadership Forum 2014 will take place in Brussels on 4 March 2014. It is set in the context of the increasing policy focus placed at European and national level on addressing the growing burden of chronic diseases such as diabetes.
This year’s Forum aims to gather a high level, multi stakeholder audience of national and EU level attendees to discuss how to best manage diabetes as a model for sustainable chronic disease management. In this discussion a cornerstone will be the exchange of good practice across Europe on secondary prevention of diabetes as well as patient empowerment in diabetes management.

The Forum will feature keynote speeches from His Royal Highness Prince Joachim of Denmark, patron of the Danish Diabetes Association, EU health Commissioner Tonio Borg and the Danish Minister for Health Astrid Krag as well as a contribution from Christel Schaldemose MEP, Co-Chair of the European Parliament’s Diabetes Working Group. Dr. Iveta Rajnicova-Nagyova has been invited to participate in a panel discussion within Session 2 : Patient empowerment and effective diabetes management.
