Dr. David Kerr from WSDC is a member of the planning committee for the world’s premier meeting focusing on diabetes and technology. This year’s meeting is focusing on technological advancement in many areas including the artificial pancreas, smart insulin pens, glucose monitoring and a special session on continuous insulin monitoring – Dr Kerr will be one of the key speakers for this session.
The 17th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting is from November 2 to November 4, 2017, 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 500 clinicians and scientists from 24 countries to focus on applying science and technology to fight diabetes.
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.
