Welcome Message | Conference President
The city of Buenos Aires has much to celebrate in October 2010. Not only will it receive the participants of the 36th ISPAD Annual Meeting, but it will be the first ISPAD Meeting to be held in Latin America. In 2010 Argentina is celebrating its 200th anniversary as an independent state, and the whole country will be enjoying the lovely southern hemisphere's spring season. Argentina and Latin America are very proud that Buenos Aires has been chosen as the venue for this Meeting.
Prestigious speakers are coming from all over the world, from both emerging and first world countries, creating an atmosphere of understanding. Two hemispheres will be working together and sharing their knowledge and experiences helping us to comprehend different realities. It is our desire that not only information, but also cultures will interact to bring better understanding among us..
We hope all nations to be present, and we also hope that you can find a relaxed atmosphere that Buenos Aires and the presence of Latin American affection can bring you.
The Scientific Programme will provide great opportunities to learn and discuss new information concerning diagnostic and therapeutic developments as well as cutting edge data in several fields of diabetes research and care: new and exciting advances in the fields of prevention and management of diabetes and all its interrelated factors.
Another fundamental aspect that makes this meeting unique is that it will have simultaneous English - Spanish translation thanks to the kindness of the whole Assembly, a kindness all the Spanish speaking community really appreciates as it allows them to share opinions more smoothly. As this will be a multidisciplinary meeting for pediatricians, nurses, nutritionists, psychologists and other members of the health group, they will all have the opportunity of attending general and special sessions.
Optimal diabetes care requires an integral approach and an active collaboration between all health professionals. This partnership will enable us to meet our common goal: to enhance the lives of children and adolescents with diabetes.
Buenos Aires is waiting for you!
