Victoria Atkins joined a number of colleagues, including Home Secretary Theresa May, at a recent event in the Houses of Parliament celebrating recent success in type 1 diabetes research.
She also welcomed constituent Kody Moore, and his parents Liam and Verity, to the event.
The event, called #Type1Catalyst, was held by the type 1 diabetes charity JDRF, and saw leading figures in medical research and Members of Parliament join families with a connection to type 1 diabetes.
“The highlight of my last few weeks in Westminster has undoubtedly been welcoming my constituent Kody, aged 8, and his parents, Liam and Verity, to the Palace of Westminster to a reception on the treatment of children with Type-1 Diabetes.
I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 3 and so I was delighted to show my support.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Kody and his family and I look forward to my visit to Kody’s school in the coming term.”
