IVth ISPAD/VAPES Postgraduate Course and Meeting “CHANGING DIABETES"

The IVth ISPAD/VAPES Postgraduate Course and Conference “CHANGING DIABETES” will take place on April, 20-22, 2017, in Varna, Bulgaria. Click here to view the official announcement.

Local organizers aim to attract interested pediatric endocrinologists, pediatricians, postgraduate trainees, medical students and nurses.

The chosen topics concentrate on aspects of current achievements and expectations in the field of the daily management of diabetes and rare endocrine diseases in children and adolescents, with a special emphasis on new technologies enabling health and societal challenges.



Over the past years ISPAD has supported the integration of diabetes clinic data in the SWEET database. This is becoming progressively a worldwide clinical registry. Such a registry will not only allow comparisons - benchmarking - between centers, but it can also contribute to combine forces in tackling diagnostic challenges, and in improving care for the rare forms of diabetes.
