ISPAD 2019 Impressions

“The future of pediatric diabetes care and research starts NOW!”

By all accounts, the 45th Annual Conference of ISPAD at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston, attended by 1,170 delegates from 78 countries, was a resounding success. The opening ceremony featured a memorable performance by the Harvard Krokodiloes, the a cappella group consisting of twelve talented undergraduate men whose repertoire includes popular music of the Great American Songbook.

Each day commenced with an outstanding plenary session by world renowned scientists, followed by simultaneous symposia on a broad array of topics, and oral presentations of new science. Well attended, outstanding industry-sponsored symposia filled the lunch breaks, followed by poster tours and additional parallel symposia in the afternoon. Many delegates had difficulty choosing among the numerous exciting parallel sessions. It is important to know, however, that thanks to an independent educational grant from Eli Lilly and Company all the presentations were recorded and will be available for viewing on the ISPAD's Conference Resource Platform. After the Annual General Assembly on Friday afternoon, a very enjoyable networking and recognition dinner took place at the Hard Rock café where those with exceptional stamina kept the evening going until the wee hours of Saturday morning. After three and a half days of exhilarating science and networking, the meeting closed on Saturday with a spectacular JDRF-sponsored symposium on “Closing the Loop”, a view into the imminent future of pediatric diabetes care. We are particularly grateful to our numerous corporate partners for their continued support and to the 57 faculty from 14 countries for their hard work and superb presentations.

Asma Deeb and her scientific committee are already fully engaged in preparing for the 46th annual ISPAD conference to be held at the world class ADNEC congress center in Abu Dhabi, October 14-17, 2020. We hope to see you there!
