On November 2 and 3, 2001, the Dorothy L. and James E. Frank Diabetes Research Institute of Mills-Peninsula Health Services in San Mateo, California, will be presenting The Diabetes Technology Meeting, a conference to learn about the latest diabetes-management technology.
The meeting, co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the University of California, Berkeley, Department of Bioengineering and Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics, will be held at the San Francisco Marriott Hotel. According to David Klonoff, MD, FACP, medical director of Mills-Peninsula Health Services and editor-in-chief of Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics, an impressive lineup of distinguished presenters will be in attendance at the meeting, including Edmonton Protocol pioneer James Shapiro, MD, and Mark Arnold, PhD, from the University of Iowa.
“They will be addressing topics such as new technology for measuring glucose, the artificial pancreas, alternate routes for delivering insulin [inhaled and oral insulin], and NASA-funded basic science research,” said Klonoff in a recent press release.
The deadline for researchers to submit abstracts for the conference is July 6, 2001. Registration for the conference, which includes all sessions and meals, is $425 if submitted by July 27, 2001. After that, it is $495. Students can register for $375.
