No. II / February 2018


Message from the President


ISPAD goes to Asia! I am tremendously grateful to Anju Virmani and Banshi Saboo who have worked tirelessly, in collaboration with a stellar local and international scientific committee, to plan an exciting program for our 44th Annual ISPAD Conference in Hyderabad, India from October 11-14, 2018. In addition to the “typical” ISPAD Scientific Meeting, they have planned a parallel program, “Diabetes 101”, intended to meet the needs of delegates who may be interested in learning about more fundamental aspects of diabetes care. “Diabetes 101” will provide a comprehensive review of the major topics in pediatric diabetes, both type 1 and type 2, and will be delivered by a cast of renowned experts. The meeting will take place at the award-winning Hyderabad International Convention Centre, a modern “state-of-the-art” facility. It’s time to begin thinking about preparing your abstracts. Mark your calendars!

ISPAD President


Message from the Secretary General


Dear ISPAD colleagues,

I would like to share my enthusiasm for the upcoming 44th Annual ISPAD Conference in Hyderabad, India, having recently visited our conveners Drs Anju Virmani and Banshi Saboo as their guest at the Diabetes India conference in Kolkata that included an
ISPAD sponsored workshop and then a visit to Hyderabad for a second workshop

We have a lot to look forward to at the annual conference this year: an excellent scientific program, a modern and comfortable convention center with numerous hotel options, easy connections to Hyderabad via multiple airlines, a rich cultural exchange with friendly and engaging colleagues and gracious hosts, and did I mention the outstanding cuisine and shopping?

I can’t wait to return to India in October and renewing friendships, collaborations, and exploring new opportunities.  We look forward to seeing you in Hyderabad!

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.
