Lauren Quinn 

Mentor: Dr Rowan Hillson, National Clinical Director for Diabetes 2008-2013

Why ALMP? I am delighted to be part of the Alumni Leadership Mentoring Programme and to be mentored by none other than Dr Rowan Hillson (MBE). I look forward to learning about how to make national and international change happen in diabetes care. I also hope to work on the design of my medical elective with the International Diabetes Federation by discussions and ideas-exchange with my mentor. I also look forward to learning where the future of diabetes care lies, where it is heading and the research which needs to be prioritised to make it happen, from a mentor with such a wealth of experience and expertise.
