The diabetes community loses a passionate advocate in Alojz Rudolf

22 June 2021

It is with great sadness that we learned that Alojz Rudolf passed away on Saturday, June 18, 2021.

Alojz Rudolf was IDF Europe Treasurer from 2009-2015 and was re-elected as IDF Europe Board Member in December 2019, supporting IDF Europe through his in-depth financial and diabetes expertise. During all these years, his personal diabetes experience and his genuine passion to advocate for change were an inspiration for all of us including the young diabetes advocates, whom he cherished deeply and supported through his active role on the IDF Europe Youth Committee. At IDF Europe, we will remember him as an exceptional diabetes advocate and a close friend. We will forever be thankful for his support.

Alojz Rudolf also played a preponderant role at national level as Board Member and Vice-President of the Slovenian Diabetes Association since 1996.

His engagement and dedication to raising diabetes awareness greatly contributed to improving the lives of people with diabetes.

On behalf of the European diabetes community, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to his family as well as to all the colleagues and volunteers of the Slovenian Diabetes Association in this time of grief.
