Welcome Message!

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of ISPAD I would like to warmly welcome you all to the 42nd Annual Conference of the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes 2016, to be held on October 26, 2016 in Valencia, Spain.

As the motto of the conference “Education and new Technologies: Enhancing Care in Diabetes” suggests, this scientific meeting seeks to include all aspects of Pediatric Diabetes and other metabolic related diseases focusing on education and new technologies.

Scientific sessions are underscored by plenary sessions, symposia, oral and poster sessions, and workshops that highlight the most up-to-date data related to diabetes clinical care and research, both at clinical and at molecular level, including animal models. These sessions will emphasize how biological, technological, psychological and social barriers can be overcome to improve outcomes of care for children and adolescents with diabetes, as well as new research findings in and practical aspects of other related metabolic diseases. We will debate about epidemiology, etiology and pathogenesis of diabetes diversity focusing on prevention, diagnostic and therapeutic tools.

We are glad to invite not only pediatric diabetologists and endocrinologists, but also internists, diabetes/endocrine nurses and dieticians as well as psychologists, social workers and others involved in the care of pediatric diabetes from all over the world!
