LOD hosts Global Training delegations of type 1 diabetes advocates – the “DiAdvocates” – to implement shared protocols and techniques to help advance diabetes education outcomes diversely around the world with a relatable approach, tackling psychological hurdles and encouraging more patient empowerment networks.


In 2018 LOD hosted 16 DiAdvocates from 12 countries in London for a 5 day training schedule, with a targeted theme for producing active ‘LOD Project’ outcomes – practical forms of events to engage diabetes communities to learn in a sociable environment. The next LOD Global Training is targeted to be held in Abu Dhabi and Kuwait in 2020, where the outcome theme will be set on producing diabetes advocacy camps around the world.
