For the first time, the Type 1 Diabetes Network had a presence at the World Diabetes Congress 2013, which was very fortunately held in Melbourne.  We hosted a stall to launch our new website and the beautifully redesigned Starter Kit.  It was very exciting to be there, but we didn’t get much time to attend events, so we asked Melinda Seed (our long-time director and treasurer) to tell us about all the sessions she attended, and to give an overview of the congress generally.
