Dr Clare Whicher, Chair Young Diabetes and Endocrinologists (YDEF)

I am currently in my third year of taking a period out of programme to be involved with research looking at people with severe mental illness and obesity and type 2 diabetes.  I am passionate about diabetes care in vulnerable or often forgotten patient groups. This includes transitional care, people with co-existent mental health issues and preconception planning in women with type 2 diabetes. I am the chair of the Young Diabetes and Endocrinologists (YDEF) committee which is committed to delivering training and support to other trainees across the country. I was delighted to be nominated for the Rising Star category at the Wessex Clinical Research Network awards in 2019 and to secure a place on the DUK IDia fellowship programme which support young diabetes researchers in the UK.
