Lis Warren, a tireless campaigner, has become the summer cover star of Balance magazine, advocating better knowledge of diabetes and care for people with the condition.
Lis is featured on the front cover of the Summer 2017 issue of Balance - our membership magazine. Inside the magazine, Lis is featured as a blogger and tweeter (@LisWarren) who was invited to attend the Diabetes UK professional conference, held in Manchester, to offer a unique view on current news and research.
“I have lived with Type 1 diabetes for 52 years and want young people to know that diabetes is only a word, not a sentence!”
Lis, who is retired and lives in Pinner, said:
“I love hearing about the latest ways of managing and living well with diabetes. The conference was also a great place to gather and share positive messages and encourage others to feel empowered."
