Thriveabetes 2016 Speakers & Facilitators

Our goal at Thriveabetes is to bring speakers who are well known, not just in Ireland but in the global diabetes community. We strive to find speakers who connect with our delegates and who prepare lively and entertaining presentations as well as informative.


We feel that we have excelled in the presenters and facilitators we were able to attract to Thriveabetes 2016.
