Dear Diabetes Professional,
We are pleased to invite you to join us this fall for the 15th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, from October 22 to October 24, 2015, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
This will be an excellent opportunity to meet leading scientists in the field of diabetes research and learn about the latest technological advances for people with diabetes. Last year’s meeting in Bethesda, Maryland brought together over 450 clinicians and scientists from 24 countries to focus on applying science and technology to fight diabetes.
Notable highlights at this year’s meeting:
- First public presentation of DTSec (Diabetes Technology Society Cybersecurity Standard for Connected Diabetes Devices project)
- Presentations of the latest information on seven different Continuous Glucose Monitors
- Latest updates on Social Media and Diabetes Technology
The meeting’s goal is to assemble technology developers and users to facilitate creation of new and cost-effective tools—including an artificial pancreas—to help people with diabetes. The meeting will particularly emphasize original data. Scientists and clinicians will have plenty of opportunities to share ideas in both formal and informal settings, and gain insight into how to help decrease the physical and psychological burden of diabetes.
The format will include state-of-the-art lectures, oral presentations of abstracts, panel discussions with Q & A sessions, and two poster sessions. A syllabus of the submitted abstracts will be distributed to all attendees.
Every attendee will receive a 1-year subscription to Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology. This peer-reviewed bimonthly scientific journal is indexed by the National Library of Medicine for MEDLINE/PubMed and is the world’s first purely electronic diabetes journal (www.jdst.org).
We look forward to seeing you in Bethesda and sharing information about projects of mutual interest.
With best wishes,
David C. Klonoff, M.D., FACP, FRCP (Edin), Fellow AIMBE
