ISPAD Newsletter 04/2018



No. IV /April 2018

A message from the President


In April, ISPAD achieved a momentous milestone surpassing 1,000 active members. I am particularly pleased to report that membership has increased from regions of the world that have previously not been well represented. The conveners of the ISPAD 2018 meeting in Hyderabad, Drs. Anju Virmani and Banshi Saboo, deserve special recognition and my grateful appreciation for their remarkably successful efforts to promote ISPAD on the Indian subcontinent.


There has been considerable progress toward completion of the revised and updated ISPAD Clinical Practice Consensus Guidelines scheduled to be published in Pediatric Diabetes in October 2018, coinciding with our annual meeting. To date, 15 chapters have been completed and posted on the ISPAD forum for comments by our membership. An additional six topics are pending and are expected to be completed soon. I strongly encourage members to try to make time to read and comment on topics in their specific areas of interest. Despite the outstanding work by the authors and editors, the quality of the articles is enhanced by constructive criticism from members. Please contribute! 




Joseph Wolfsdorf
ISPAD President
