As in previous years, IDF Europe was offered a booth and a meeting room at the Associations’ Village by the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Lisbon, Portugal. Flyers on EU-funded projects, on IDF Europe Prizes, and on the YOURAH initiative were distributed during the 5-day meeting (11-15 September 2017). Visitors particularly appreciated the friendly and dynamic welcome given by our young advocates who gathered at the booth and promoted current and future youth activities supported by IDF Europe.
