The award is given in recognition of outstanding contributions to the understanding and treatment of diabetes and pregnancy at a national and international level.

This award is one of the two leading diabetes in pregnancy research awards in the world. David received the other (the Norbert Freinkel Award) in 2020. In 2009 he also received the Joseph Hoet award. He is the only diabetes in pregnancy researcher in the world to receive all 3 of these awards. What a phenomenal achievement - congratulations David
