Her personal experience of being a parent of a daughter with diabetes, coupled with her inspirational enthusiasm to improve the lives of those with diabetes, make her an ideal person to drive forward the Network of Parliamentary Champions in Europe. These Champions can do so much in their own countries to advance policies on care, treatment, research and prevention of diabetes, and Malta remains an excellent example of how much committed Parliamentarians can do to advance the cause of diabetes. My co-Chair Chris Delicata and I very much look forward to working with Claudette and her colleagues” External link
