A message from the President

It is a great pleasure to be able to welcome many new members to ISPAD. At the most recent meeting of the Executive Board, I was thrilled to learn that ISPAD now has more than 1,000 active members.
We are now seeking nominations for five positions on the Advisory Council (four physicians and one allied healthcare professional). As our society has grown in size and complexity, the Advisory Council has played an increasingly important role in supporting and guiding the activities of the Executive Board. I am tremendously grateful for the contributions of those Advisory Council members whose terms will be expiring in October and encourage our members to put their names forward for the upcoming election.

It has been tremendously gratifying to see increasing participation of non-physician healthcare professionals in ISPAD activities and now, in addition to Jenious (the ISPAD network for young members), there are online special interest groups for nutritionists, diabetes nurse educators, and mental health professionals. These are intended to serve as a place to network, a forum for discussion, and a portal to share ideas and resources. Spread the word!
Pediatric Diabetes, the official journal of ISPAD, is now available on iPad and iPhone. The app can be downloaded from the link included in this month’s newsletter.

Finally, please do not miss the opportunity to take advantage of the early registration deadline, July 12, for ISPAD 2018 in Hyderabad. The scientific committee has worked hard to prepare an exciting program, including, for the first time, a parallel program “Diabetes 101” intended for physicians and healthcare professionals who are not primarily experts in the care of diabetes in children and adolescents.   

Joseph Wolfsdorf
ISPAD President
