Welcome to India!


Dear friends,


On behalf of the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes, we warmly invite you to the 44th Annual Conference of ISPAD, which will take place from October 11-14, 2018. This will be unique in many ways: ISPAD comes to India for the first time, to a city rich in history, art, jewelry, spices…. Hyderabad, the city of pearls, founded in 1589, is the capital of the southern state of Telengana, and a major hub of the technology industry today. It is the perfect flavorful combination of old and new, where we will discuss what is new in diabetes research and how to take this care to benefit each child with diabetes. This aim has inspired the 2018 motto for the conference:“reaching the unreached”. The meeting will bring together endocrinologists, diabetologists, diabetes educators, dietitians, psychologists, and experts from allied fields from all corners of the world. We welcome you to join in this opportunity to explore new developments in basic and clinical research and exchange ideas on how to implement them in the real world. The final aim, of course, is a child with diabetes anywhere on this planet who can grow up to be a happy, healthy, productive adult.

Join us in Hyderabad to take part in this exciting journey!

Looking forward to seeing you there,
