No. V  / June 2018

A message from the President


It has been a tremendous pleasure to get to know and work with our stellar ISPAD Advisory Council, which consists of 13 individuals representing nine countries:  Australia, USA, Chile, United Kingdom, Brazil, Italy, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, and Germany. Each Advisory Council member has contributed to ISPAD’s mission in various ways and provided valuable advice to the Executive Board on a wide range of topics. We are immensely grateful for their service and contributions. Five Advisory Council incumbents will be completing their terms in 2018, giving other members of our society an opportunity to contribute their wisdom and passion. I urge members who would like to join the Advisory Council to submit your nomination for the upcoming election without delay. Furthermore, please note that applications for the office of Treasurer will now close on Wednesday, June 27.
Stuart Brink, Past President and Secretary-General, has prepared an inspiring history of ISPAD in PowerPoint format. As I reviewed Stu’s presentation, the familiar quotation came to mind: “we stand on the shoulders of giants”. I suspect those who founded the International Study Group for Childhood Diabetes (ISGD) 44 years ago would be pleased with the results of their vision.   
It is also time to think about worthy candidates for ISPAD’s prizes to be awarded at the annual meeting. These include the ISPAD Prize for Achievement, the ISPAD Lestradet Prize for Education and Advocacy, and the ISPAD Prize for Innovation in Pediatric Diabetes Care.  The application must include a detailed letter with the candidate’s name and explanation why he/she should be awarded the prize together with the candidate’s complete CV. The documents should be sent to
