ISPAD Hero Award

This award identifies and honors non-clinicians* from around the world who have developed projects with a broad impact, thus contributing to improving and transforming the lives of many young people with diabetes.

The project selected must have impacted the lives of several children, adolescents or young adults (rather than an isolated project that contributed to the well-being of one individual with diabetes)

The award will be given based on the nominee's work in leadership; commitment; compassion in care; partnership; breadth and depth of efforts; and impact.

The awardee will be invited to attend ISPAD’s Annual Conference to officially receive the award, during ISPAD’s Networking & Recognition Evening. Registration, Economy travel and accommodation will all be covered by ISPAD.

*Someone who is not working as a healthcare professional, e.g. not working as a primary care giver of a patient in a hospital, skilled nursing facility, clinic, or patient's home.


Nomination Criteria:

  • Nominations for the award can only be submitted by an ISPAD Member
  • Potential award recipients must be nominated by someone other than themselves
  • The potential award recipient (or group) must:
  • Be a non-clinical person
  • Have implemented a project that benefits a large group of people with diabetes rather than an individual


All applications received will be reviewed and voted on by ISPAD’s executive board and Advisory Council members.

The nomination deadline was May 22, 2020.
