A message from the President

Greetings from Boston where the summer has been unusually hot and humid. Daily, I pay homage to Willis Carrier the inventor of air conditioning and acknowledge my wife, who, as usual, was right when she resisted my negativity and argued persuasively that installing air conditioning in our home would be a good financial investment.

I am extremely pleased to report that 355 regular abstracts and an additional 17 late-breaking abstracts have been received. Drs. Anju Virmani and Banshi Saboo, the local conveners, together with their local and international scientific committees, have worked tirelessly to create an exciting scientific program whose theme is “Reaching the Unreached”. I encourage all ISPAD members to read their interview with Jamie Wood (link is provided in the current newsletter). If you are ambivalent about attending the conference in Hyderabad, I hope you will be convinced that this particular conference should not be missed.

Each year at its annual conference, ISPAD is proud to award four endowed prizes to recognize outstanding contributions and commitment to the values of our Society in Science, Education, and Advocacy. It is a great pleasure to announce the four outstanding ISPAD Prize Winners for 2018 and to warmly congratulate them:  Moshe Phillip, ISPAD Prize for Achievement; Ragnar Hanas, Lestradet Prize for Education and Advocacy; Bruce Buckingham, ISPAD Prize for Innovation in Pediatric Diabetes Care; and Martin Tauschmann, Young Investigator Prize.

I am looking forward, with eager anticipation, to our 44th Annual Conference, in less than 8 weeks, where we will have the opportunity to formally honor the recipients of the ISPAD prizes.

Joseph Wolfsdorf
ISPAD President
