Message from the President

It is an honour for CUI.D.AR to join the International Diabetes Federation in the incredible work they do in support of people with diabetes around the world. We dream of a world without diabetes, but while this does not happen, we hope to help raise the voice of people living with this chronic condition, particularly children and young people in order to achieve a healthy, full and happy life.
