An very special presentation took place at the Riverside in Towcester when Susan Parker who has been an insulin dependent diabetic for 60 years was presented with the Lawrence Medal by Dr Charles Fox and Dr Anne Kilvert.

The RD Lawrence medal is named after Dr Lawrence, one of the first people in the UK to receive insulin when he was diagnosed in the 1920s and a founding member of the British Diabetic Association, now Diabetes UK.

The awards are named after some of the very first patients to receive insulin; Dr Lawrence was diagnosed in the 1920s, and Alan D N Nabarro, OBE, was diagnosed in 1922 and given six months to live, but survived another 55 years due to the discovery of insulin. The Nabarro award is presented for over 50 years being dependent on insulin.

Both were active members of the British Diabetic Association (now Diabetes UK)

The Towcester branch of Diabetes UK meets on Tuesday evenings at the Riverside on Islington Road.
