ISPAD Newsletter 03/2018



No. III /March 2018

A message from the President


First, I wish to extend a warm welcome to ISPAD’s many new members to our society and look forward to meeting you in Hyderabad in October.  Education and training is a cornerstone of ISPAD’s mission, and I strongly encourage ISPAD members (both physicians and non-physician health care providers) less than 45 years of age to apply for an Allan Drash Fellowship. I also take this opportunity to urge our more senior members who lead pediatric diabetes centers with multidisciplinary diabetes teams serving at least 100 patients to consider volunteering to be an Allan Drash Fellowship Host Center.



Joseph Wolfsdorf
ISPAD President
