We would like to thank all of our members that participated in the end of the year feedback survey. We value your input and will use your suggestions in the coming years to make ISPAD an even more valuable association for its members!
IVth ISPAD/VAPES Postgraduate Course and Meeting “CHANGING DIABETES"
The IVth ISPAD/VAPES Postgraduate Course and Conference “CHANGING DIABETES” will take place on April, 20-22, 2017, in Varna, Bulgaria. Click here to view the official announcement.
Local organizers aim to attract interested pediatric endocrinologists, pediatricians, postgraduate trainees, medical students and nurses.
The chosen topics concentrate on aspects of current achievements and expectations in the field of the daily management of diabetes and rare endocrine diseases in children and adolescents, with a special emphasis on new technologies enabling health and societal challenges.
Over the past years ISPAD has supported the integration of diabetes clinic data in the SWEET database. This is becoming progressively a worldwide clinical registry. Such a registry will not only allow comparisons - benchmarking - between centers, but it can also contribute to combine forces in tackling diagnostic challenges, and in improving care for the rare forms of diabetes.
We heartily invite you to the 43rd Annual Conference of the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes, to be held from October, 18-21, 2017, in Innsbruck, Austria.
The annual meeting will stimulate thought and discussion and foster an exchange of ideas that will lead to improvements in the treatment and outcome of childhood diabetes. The program will provide ample opportunities to meet and challenge experts and to take part in lively academic debates.
