Posted on January 27th, 2017 in Local News

Keith met with Stella Sabata, IDF-Europe Regional Manager, Giulia Barenghi, IDF-Europe Policy Officer and Beatriz Yanez Jimenez, IDF Global Advocacy Coordinator for the International Diabetes Federation on a recent trip to Brussels.

At the meeting he signed up to the IDF’s IMPACT diabetes pledge. The Pledge is an Initiative to Mobilise Parliamentarians to Act to Prevent, Care and Treat diabetes.

By signing the pledge, Keith has agreed to lend his support in Parliament to promoting diabetes prevention, screening, treatment and care.

The Pledge will be formally launched to European Parliamentarians at an event at the House of Commons later this year.
