Former MP named VP for JDRF

Former MP named VP for JDRF

Adrian Sanders (pictured right), the former MP and chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Diabetes, and newly-elected councillor in Devon, has been named a Vice-President of JDRF. He joins Dame Susan Hampshire as a Vice President and brings a wealth of experience with him as he’s lived with Type 1 diabetes for 25 years. He was the Member of Parliament for Torbay from 1997 until 2015. As a MP, Adrian was instrumental in bringing Type 1 diabetes to the political table raising awareness of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and promoting engagement between parliamentarians, clinicians, relevant organisations and patients. Saunders says, “I am delighted and honoured to become a Vice-President of JDRF. This is a charity close to my heart – as well as living with the condition, I have been campaigning for improvements in diabetes care and research throughout my parliamentary career.”
