Diabetes Research Steering Group: Young People With Diabetes

The Young People With Diabetes group aims to improve our understanding of diabetes in children and young adults. This is a joint group with the British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (BSPED) and the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN). It will consider all aspects of diabetes in children and young adults.
