Lewis Wilmot becomes Diabetes UK young person’s ambassador

When out at an event, Lewis, despite being in a crowded room, lifted the bottom of his shirt and injected himself with his insulin pen.

This caught the eye of representatives of Diabetes UK nearby, where they asked Lewis to be a young person’s ambassador for diabetes.

Lewis is undoubtedly a positive role model for diabetes. so we are excited to see where this opportunity takes him.
