Associate Professor Jackie Sturt, Assistant Director of Research at Warwick Diabetes Care, was recently shortlisted for a national award for her research into the effectiveness of the Diabetes Manual. The manual, devised by Warwick Diabetes Care, in collaboration with the Heart Manual Team, contains information and advice for Type 2 diabetes sufferers and their families.
The Diabetes UK Education Award recognises the importance of the evaluation of education in diabetes care. Dr Sturt presented her research at the Diabetes UK Annual Professional Conference 2007 in March.
