Comment from Professor Fidelma Dunne on being selected as the recipient of the ADA’s 2024 Norbert Freinkel Award  I am thrilled to receive this award on behalf of Irish Endocrinology. It is timely to acknowledge the long standing working relationship and research collaboration with many members of the society around the country which has contributed to this award. In particular I wish to extend my appreciation to all the Endocrine trainees over the last 20 years who have worked on and published research findings in DiP. Lastly my work in Diabetes in Pregnancy has only been possible through the support of skilled colleagues in the Institute of Clinical Trials at the University of Galway, Galway University Hospital and the Saolta Hospital group.”
