Dr. Kerr Honored With Prestigious Award

 Congratulations to our Dr. David Kerr, he just received The Leadership award today at the 2017 Diabetes Technology Society Meeting. The major award is in recognition of significant leadership, vision and research. 
"I am very honored and delighted," says Dr. David Kerr.  "Most importantly the ongoing work at Sansum Diabetes Research Institute was highlighted, notably Mil Familias and digital health," says Dr. Kerr. 

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.

It is 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.
