Report from the 11th ISPAD Science School for Health Professionals

The 11th ISPAD Science School for Health Professionals (SSHP) was conducted in Toronto 31st August to 2nd September 2014. It was attended by 15 international students; 5 from Australia, 2 from USA, 2 from India, and 1 each from Belgium, Canada, Chile, Israel, New Zealand and Poland. There was also a good spread of disciplines including 4 dietitians, 5 diabetes nurse educators, 3 psychologists and 3 social workers.

Dear friends and colleagues

As mentioned at the General Meeting this Friday (5th of September 2014), the scrutineers of the e-voting results have declared that the results are invalid. Despite extensive testing  prior to the start of the e-voting, a human error has caused the loss of all votes.

We deeply apologize for this. The IT and management committee are preparing a new e-voting procedure. You will receive further information in due course.

Kind regards

Carine de Beaufort

Secretary General
