No. I /January 2018

Message from the President

I write now from Boston where we have experienced unusually frigid weather (current temperature -10 degree Celsius) with an occasional blizzard … just for good measure.
The joy and excitement of the Holiday Season has come and gone and we begin the work of a New Year.

Planning for our annual meeting October 11-14 in Hyderabad, India is well under way led by our colleagues Anju Virmani and Banshi Saboo. Registration will be opening soon. I am particularly excited because this will be the first ever ISPAD scientific meeting on the Indian subcontinent I am also hopeful that, in addition to the usual attendees, this meeting will attract large numbers of individuals involved in diabetes care from India and neighboring countries who may not, ordinarily, be able to attend ISPAD meetings in Europe or North America.

Recognizing that the fee for membership of ISPAD may be beyond the means of potential members in low- and middle-income countries as well as non-physician or so-called “allied health professionals” wo are so vital to the delivery of comprehensive diabetes care, ISPAD has initiated a new membership fee structure. We hope this will enable many more individuals to become ISPAD members and will enable current wavering or undecided members to renew their ISPAD memberships and continue to contribute to our society as active members.

Outstanding work continues revising and updating the ISPAD guidelines, slated for publication by October 2018. Again, I encourage members to read these documents, available on the ISPAD website (Guidelines Forum appears as the last item under the tab Guidelines), and provide constructive comments to the authors.



Joseph Wolfsdorf
ISPAD President
