International Diabetes Federation (ISPAD) 36th Annual Meeting 2011

Miami, FL, USA
19 Ottobre, 2011 – 22 Ottobre, 2011

Our next annual meeting will be in Miami, USA, Oct 19th – 22nd 2011. The ISPAD scientific meeting is always an outstanding annual event. At the Miami meeting, we will have plenary sessions, symposia, paper and poster sessions, and workshops addressing the cutting edge science of pediatric diabetes care. The theme of the 2011 meeting will be „Possibilities for Prevention of Diabetes and its Complications.” We all work to prevent complications in our patients with diabetes. The best chances for accomplishing this is through integrated comprehensive care addressing medical, behavioral, and psychosocial needs and this issue will be highlighted in the meeting. We will also focus on primary prevention of diabetes. My colleague and co-chair of the organizing committee, Jay Skyler, MD, will lead a special session on the latest efforts to prevent type 1 diabetes in children, and we will also have a session focusing on prevention of type 2 diabetes.
