Interview with ISPAD Treasurer Andrea Scaramuzza


What is your function as Treasurer?

As Treasurer I have many tasks to fulfill. The most important one is to assure the financial health of ISPAD, ensuring that funds used to sustain the educational or organizational activities of our society are replaced by sponsorship and income from membership. The Treasurer is one of the Board Directors of the charity ISPAD, and in this role has to make decision about ISPAD strategies, with attention to the society’s financial balance. Moreover, he/she has to approve (or not) expenses made for ISPAD by members of the Steering Committee. Finally, finding new ways of attracting more membership or sponsorship is a key quality needed for the role of treasurer.

What is your preferred field of research?

Everything that deals with the health of a child or adolescent or young adults with diabetes is interesting in my mind. This is the reason why, in my Center, we have developed different areas of interest in diabetes research, exercise, micro vascular complication prevention and treatment, insulin pump therapy, continuous glucose monitoring. If I have to choose what I prefer, technology applied to the monitoring and care of diabetes in children is the field that I prefer.

What are your education/ SSP activities?

I very much like to find some time to dedicate to the education of young pediatricians interested in diabetology, or to expand knowledge related to diabetes in areas of the world where this is missing. For this reason, in the past years, I have spent some time travelling in Arabic countries to give lectures and I organized the Science School for Physicians last year in Milano, Italy. It was a huge success and I am happy to be involved in the SSP that will be held this year in Norway. And maybe I will put forward a new candidature for next year, for an SSP in Italy!
